Custom Made Music
Custom Made Music is a collection of instrumental books that focus on new music for the student player. Each
piece in the series is composed by Belinda Reynolds in collaboration with top performers and teachers. The
results are solos and ensemble chamber works of increasing difficulty that challenge the student performer
while filling gaps in today’s new music pedagogical repertoire.
This book, the sixth in the Custom Made Music Series, is a collection of ten Progressive Solos and Duos
for Trumpet. From day one I collaborated with Editor Ashley Killam to create a range of music that both
we and her students found to be engaging, idiomatic, and educational. I hope students, teachers, and
professional performers enjoy learning them as much as I did in composing the music! -BLR
