Stellwagen Bank Solo for Trumpet and Piano
Stellwagen Bank is a solo for Bb Trumpet and Piano from the collection Scenes from the Cape. This collection is dedicated to my brother, Jerry Nelson, who was a musician and puppeteer with the Muppets.
This MRNS Music Digital Download will include the Trumpet and Piano parts, plus a brief description of the solo. The entire collection may also be purchased as a 2 book set (solo and piano books.)
Audio recordings and Performance Tips Videos are available on the MRNS Music Channel on YouTube.
Description: Stellwagen Bank is a National Marine Sanctuary that is just above Provincetown at the mouth of the Massachusetts Bay. This piece was inspired by a whale watching trip there. Some fast valve technique is introduced as a special effect which depicts riding on the waves. Note the optional notes at the end.
