These studies are intended as a supplement to the first and second books of etudes for Trumpet or Cornet by Hering - 'Thirty-Two Etudes' and Forty 'Progressive Etudes'.
These advanced etudes provide material dealing with more specialized problems, i.e., rhythm, phrasing, and articulation. Hering’s etudes are musically interesting and challenging.
Sigmund Hering was a graduate of the Royal Academy of Music, Vienna. In 1923 he became the first trumpet in the Cleveland Orchestra, and in 1925 he accepted a similar position with the Philadelphia Orchestra under the leadership of Leopold Stokowski. In addition, Mr. Hering was on the faculty of the Settlement Music School in Philadelphia. His books of study have been published throughout the United States and Europe.
