Publications by Mark Dulin
"This book is an invaluable aid for trumpeters who endeavor to improve on a daily basis, and THAT is precisely what is needed to succeed in music. Those who are familiar with Vincent Cichowicz's teachings will be thankful for this collection of tone-producing exercises. Those who are new to his approach will be influenced by the ideas so necessary for proper tone production. Fat, vibrant sounds are the hallmark of Mr. Cichowicz’s method, although he would bristle at what he did as being referred to as a "method". He felt the playing came from within and that he was merely providing each individual with a key to open the door that made the most sense to him. Congratulations on a fine work!"

Principal Trumpet, Minnesota Orchestra
"Vincent Cichowicz’s Long Tone Studies is an excellent look into the teaching philosophy of one of the greatest brass teachers of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. His article Teaching the Concepts of Trumpet Playing, along with the written commentaries from many of his most prominent students, provide great insight into his approach to playing and teaching the trumpet. Reading this book brought back vividly the time I spent with him and reminds us all of what is important as performers and teachers. This book is a must read for every brass player!"
~ John Rommel
Professor of Trumpet, Indiana University Jacobs School of Music
"Finally a comprehensive, concise collection of this material! This volume is invaluable. Twenty-five years have gone by since I studied with Mr. Cichowicz and I still use these exercises and underlying concepts of tone production and musical thought daily. Bravo!"

"I've always considered Morley's Canzonets some of the best of the two-part Renaissance music. Mark Dulin and Balquhidder have put out a really great edition that all trumpeters can enjoy."

"Mark Dulin's new book, Complete Canzonets for Two Voices by Thomas Morley is terrific! These arrangements for two trumpets are wonderful duets that can be played by all levels of players. This is a “must have” book for anyone who enjoys playing duets."
~ Michael Sachs
Principal Trumpet, The Cleveland Orchestra
“Here Mark Dulin has assembled duets of a high musical quality not often found in trumpet duo repertoire. Every level of trumpeter will find challenge and satisfaction in these masterfully adapted pieces.”
~ Christopher Martin
Principal Trumpet, Chicago Symphony Orchestra
“I find these canzonets to be very interesting and pleasing to play. They are useful for the study of articulations, correct tone production and tuning between fourths, fifths and octaves. An ideal practice for the complete trumpeter and musician.”
