This is a version of the Bill Adam Trumpet Routine that I was taught. This routine is a series of exercises that help establish good fundamentals and sound concept. These exercises are nothing but exercises without the supervision of a good teacher out of the generations of Bill Adam students. This adaptation was kindly put into PDF by Andrew Neesley.

Adolph Sylvester (Bud) Herseth, (born July 25, 1921 in Lake Park, MN), Herseth has played principal trumpet in the Chicago Symphony Orchestra ever since he became a member in 1948 and until he retired in 2001 (53 years!). He is widely regarded as one of the greatest orchestral trumpeters of his generation. He was a student of Boston Symphony Orchestra trumpeters Marcel LaFosse (second trumpet) and Georges Mager (principal trumpet) at the New England Conservatory of Music. Herseth graduated from Luther College in Iowa. He is generally recognized as one of the world’s greatest symphonic trumpeters.

I have been very fortunate to be apart of some wonderful musical experiences. Most recently, my high school jazz band at Regis High School, here in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, has demonstrated that patience, perseverance, and a good ole’ work ethic really pays off. The Regis HS Jazz Band won the 2009 and 2010 Eau Claire Jazz Festival for the first time in the school’s historic 56-year existence! Congratulations to all of the Jazz Band students! Check out the video below of our performance at the evening feature concert in 2009!

For the past 42 years, the UWEC Jazz Festival has maintained a standard of excellence in jazz education and performance. This educational and cultural jazz festival has earned its distinction as one of the oldest and largest events by providing local, national and international artists the opportunity to showcase their creative work and by highlighting the enduring elements and important directions in this distinctly American music.
