Many of my editions for teaching the trumpet are well-known.

Trumpet teachers use them as supplementary material in their lessons and for concerts.


There are also many pieces of music that are very often played in music competitions for children and young people or music exams.

James Hook

Sonatas and Concert Pieces

with audio recording by Prof. Reinhold Friedrich

A contribution to make the classical period accessible to the trumpet: Of medium difficulty, Kristin Thielemann's arrangements of performance pieces and sonatas by James Hook (1746–1827) are ideal for tuition as well as for auditions and competitions.


Several songs of Hook were arranged as instrumental pieces and serve as a good start into this repertoire. More advanced players may try the sonatas. Apart from the frequently played Sonata Op. 99/3, even lesser known sonatas might be interesting for the trumpet because of their well-chosen keys.
