Dauverné 100 Studies from Méthode pour la Trompette (1857) - Digital Download
François Dauverné was born in Paris on February 16, 1799 and died in Paris on November 4, 1874. At age 15 he entered the Musique des Gardes-du-Corps du Roi as trumpeter and was also first trumpeter in the Orchestra of the Academie Royale de Musique. In 1833 Dauverné became the first trumpet professor at the Paris Conservatory where he taught until his retirement on January 1, 1869. His students, Arban and Saint-Jacome, went on to write two of the seminal grand methods still used today. These 100 Studies are taken from Dauverné’s Méthod pour la Trompette published in Paris in 1857. These studies serve as an important set of basic exercises for the natural trumpet.
