This project is designed to create a greater awareness of Canadian solo or accompanied trumpet music among trumpet students, teachers and professional musicians. It consists primarily of an annotated and graded catalogue of solo Canadian trumpet repertoire. Each composition entered in the catalogue has been assigned an overall Assessment of Difficulty (levels 1-10) which is explained in a pedagogical commentary. The guideline criteria used for these assessments were derived through a combination of grading systems surveyed, the most important being the Music Complexity Chart (MC2), the Royal Conservatory of Music Trumpet Syllabus (RCM), and the Official standard literature list: Tuba and Euphonium Solo Music from the International Tuba Euphonium Association (ITEA). To aid in the dissemination of the catalogue, it will be available for search on This online web index was created by Chris Hahn in 2012, to provide teachers and students a searchable database of trumpet solos.
