What do our customers say about our 'jazz etudes'?

Ken Brown - Trumpet player with the Halle Orchestra

"The 65 études are exactly what I need to break the impasse and have the confidence to overcome years of "slavery to the dots". Darren has achieved so much by Intelligently applying himself to the task of understanding the language and developing his own talent. The 65 études are a wealth of genuine standards from the "greats" across the genres. Darren's articulate presentation encourages you to persist and really achieve. See you at the other end.....

Martin WInter - Principal Trumpet with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra


'Hi Darren, I really love your book/books. I was a brass band nerd (still am I suppose) til I entered the RNCM aged 23. I did 10 years with the BBC Philharmonic then moved to Norway and the Bergen Philharmonic. I have been here for 20 years now combining the orchestra and playing lead trumpet with the Bergen big band. I also conduct bands and write my own music. The thing I like about your etudes is it allows me to be slightly freer in my improvisation. I usually find due to my “classical” background that I improvise ok-ish during rehearsals but when I get to the gig my ideas freeze up. This maybe due to not having enough jazz language to use. Without doubt your etudes are helping me cement a better awareness of the language.'

Simon Willats - Simon has performed and recorded for the BBC and PBS, Alfred and Hal Leonard and also with many artists ranging such as Andrea Bocelli, Wayne Bergeron, Phil Woods, Paul Anka, Doc Severinson, Johnny Mathis, Allen Vizzutti and Hugh Jackman.


'Darren’s material is fantastic . Well organised Etudes set to the great standards in comfortable ranges . In my experience as a jazz teacher, there is no better way to absorb the language than jazz etudes and Darren has done a wonderful job in doing this. In this time of social distancing, Darren has made practicing fun with great play alongs and a healthy amount of material. As a very experienced performer himself, his wealth of experience comes thru his etudes and online updates. I recommend these for all levels.'


Russell Anderson - Trumpet player


'Hi Darren - I want to send you a note about my delight with your etude book. As a comeback trumpet player, these are perfect! I love having something to practice other than scales that are melodic and chord-tone based. I would think that any intermediate player would enjoy these as I do!

Keep up the great work - please!'

Jarritt A Sheel - Assistant Professor, Music Education - Berklee College of Music 

'Your etudes are great, my students love them!'
