"A true path

I remained in the US for a year and returned during consecutive summers to see him [James Stamp] again. All in all I had more than a hundred lessons; today I feel the need to share what I experienced.

I’m aware that trying to do so amounts to a near- impossibility and that teaching of such richness, based upon warm and attentive listening to the student can be properly transmitted only in person. Nevertheless I hope that my message - which is not a thesis, but a simple memento - may contribute to the perpetuation of James Stamp’s teaching.

In this first installment I review some of the basic principles of his teaching. In the next installment I offer a commentary and explanation of the «Warm ups + Studies» published by Editions BIM in order to help players use them optimally and obtain maximum benefit."
     --  Jean-Christophe Wiener

"I believe James Stamp was one of the finest teachers in the world. His approach was so flexible that I have never seen him fail to improve a player, whether it be an established symphony musician, jazz or lead player or a twelve-year-old student."
     --  Thomas Stevens, former Principal Trumpeter of the Los Angeles
