Publikationen: Willkommen


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.

Mein erstes Konzert

Originalwerke für den Anfangsunterricht

To every young musician, the first concert is a special experience. The choice of the 'right' performance piece is of vital importance: It should be technically and musically manageable, make a strong impression and give great pleasure in practising.
The edition My First Concert contains easy pieces for trumpet in B flat and piano for music lessons and first auditions. The selection of the works invites the performer on a trip through various music epochs – starting from 16th-century music via Baroque, Classical and Romantic to contemporary music. The musical journey through time ends in pleasant, modern pieces from the areas of pop and rock music which would add variety to lessons.

Most pieces can be played after 1-2 years of music lessons. Approaching the works is made easier by the enclosed CD which contains all pieces as a demo version and as a play-along version with just piano accompaniment. The edition also contains an easy piano part for accompaniment. It is deliberately kept simple so that the piano accompaniment can also be played by students – for example at concerts in music schools or at competitions.

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.

Klassik für Kinder

Die Zeitreise für junge Trompeter*innen

This edition provides young pupils with an access to classical music. Apart from pieces they may already know, like melodies from the Magic Flute, Beethoven's Symphony No. 6 or Vivaldi's Four Seasons, they also get to know other works from the Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods. The pieces are set in a pupil-friendly register and were deliberately recorded on CD in a moderate tempo. In order to encourage joint music-making, the piano accompaniment is such that it can also be played by piano pupils.


Easy Concert Pieces

Volume 3


Volume 3 is of medium difficulty and intended for players with a well-developed embouchure who can play notes up to written g”, though this note only appears as a short top note. Flexible articulation and legato playing with a well-developed dynamic range are required for pieces that are longer than those in the preceding volumes.

Easy Concert Pieces
