The Executant

The Executant is a great learning piece and a favorite for performance at Solo Festivals and beginning recitals.

For NY students going to NYSSMA, The Executant is listed as a Level 3 piece under Rubank Book of Trumpet Solos in the current NYSSMA Manual (Edition 30).

This video helped me so much! I literally just finished playing this piece for my grade 11 music exam and my teacher said it was the best he's heard me play! Thank you so much!
