Trumpet Solo Play-Alongs

Here you will find a collection of free play-alongs and backing tracks for solo trumpet. Each video plays the piano backing track along with the sheet music for the trumpet so you can follow and play along.

Playing with a backing track cannot only make your practise more fun, but it can also help keep you play in time and develop your ensemble skills. These trumpet solos would also make excellent concert items, and the sheet music is available if you wish to perform them.

I have arranged several trumpet solos with a wide variety of styles, including Christmas, Jazz, Folk, Ragtime and more!
