Tango Solo for Trumpet and Piano
Tango Solo for Trumpet and Piano is an intermediate level solo that is written in the style of a tango. Tango is in ABA form, and it features a beautiful, slow middle section. This work would serve as a great introduction to double tonguing in a solo setting and incorporates some tricky but playable time signature changes. The range just goes up to the G just above the staff, so it is perfect for those who struggle with high notes. The trumpet and piano part play off each other nicely in this work. I think your students will really enjoy playing Tango!
