Abstract (Summary)

Anthony Plog's Concerto for Trumpet, 14 Brass, and Percussion offers many performance issues and there are many methodologies and pedagogical concepts that one can utilize in order to achieve the endurance, flexibility, and technical facility required. This project report outlines readings and methodologies the author used to achieve the skills listed above. The first chapter discusses the objective pedagogy of David Hickman. Hickman's pedagogy encompasses an array of opinions on common developmental exercises. Chapter 2 concentrates on the methodology of James Stamp, emphasizing range building and endurance but with a unique approach that also develops sound production. The third chapter discusses Anthony Plog's methodology that directly concentrates on the technical facility required to play his concerto. The final chapter discusses preparation for the performance and choosing the appropriate instrument.
