The book of trumpet secrets is an account of my journey as a young musician and my desire to become a professional trumpet player against the odds. It portrays my struggles with the challenges I encountered and ultimately the discovery of what it took to make my playing reach the levels necessary to achieve my goals and even exceed my expectations.... The reader might find some of the information useful not only for trumpet playing but for a general positive life attitude. It is all about not taking "no" for an answer and pursuing your dreams with passion, dedication and hard work.
“You’re not a natural.” That’s what Dominic Derasse’s music teachers told him about playing trumpet. Determined to learn to play the soaring trumpet passages of Maynard Ferguson, Maurice Andre and other greats, Derasse embarked on a musical journey that led to a teacher, the great Carmine Caruso, who helped him discard these negative thoughts and learn the most valuable lesson of all: how to teach yourself. In this story, Derasse, one of the most sought-after trumpet players in New York City, provides equal parts inspiration and practical advice that every trumpet player needs.
