Few instruments can steal the show like a trumpet. Composers love to give them triumphant fanfares, dramatic melodies, and standout solos within band and orchestra pieces. Young trumpeters can get a taste of that excitement by studying a variety of easy trumpet solos.
Trumpet teachers can provide that variety at no cost with the excellent free trumpet solo sheet music below. Each solo is a free pdf download with piano accompaniment. Whether your trumpet student would enjoy something regal like Mouret’s “Rondeau,” made famous by Masterpiece Theater, something mournfully melodic like “Scarborough Fair,” or something challenging and technical like the “Can-Can,” there’s a perfect selection for everybody.
