The Highland Light Solo for Trumpet and Piano
The Highland Light 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: The Highland Light, located in North Truro, is the oldest and tallest lighthouse on Cape Cod. It is still active today. This solo is meant to be like a jig, and though it is written in alternating 5/8 and 6/8 time signatures (with one 3/8 bar thrown in) the rhythms are easy to feel for the students.
