The pedagogical benefits of duet playing: A Vannetelbosch Companion
Wetzel, Pierson

2007, Doctor of Musical Arts, Ohio State University, Music.
Duets provide the ideal opportunity to demonstrate for the student good tone quality, vibrato, rhythmic integrity, and intonation. Transferring this information through duet playing in the trumpet studio is fun and builds a bond between teacher and student. This bond will increase the interest of the student and reinforce music as a social activity. Another pedagogical benefit of duet playing is the opportunity to develop sight-reading skills and detect non-verbal cues in ensemble playing. L.J. Vannetelbosch’s (1965) Vingt Études Mélodiques et Techniques pour Trompette is a trumpet etude book used in The Ohio State University trumpet studio, and by trumpeters around the world. The Vannetelbosch Companion contained in this document turns this etude book into a set of concert duets. By adding a duet part to each of the etudes, it becomes a valuable resource for all trumpet teachers. Each duet line serves to instruct the student about style and other previously mentioned skills. An annotated bibliography of the pedagogical benefits of duet playing can be found in the appendix. It represents all written resources pertaining to duet playing to date.
