William Vacchiano was a legend in the brass world for over 70 years - for 31 of those he sat in the principal trumpet chair of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. Sadly, he passed away aged 93, in September 2005. He was a natural teacher and mentor - inspiring many of his students to achieve successful performing careers of their own around the globe.
The ability to triple and double tongue is a great asset in perfecting technique and an indispensable prerequisite to any trumpeter embarking on a performance or teaching career. In most of the method and etude books which I've used during in my teaching at Julliard, I have found that the attention devoted to the study and acquisition of these skills is rarely proportional to their importance. It is hoped that my two books, The Art of Double Tonguing and The Art of Triple Tonguing, will help to remidy this deficiency.Before the turn of the twentieth century very little demand was placed on trumpeters for a fast articulation, as much of the music that comprised the standard symphonic repertoire did not require such technique. This began to change with the appearance of pieces which included passages of such articulative complexity for the trumpet that a new mastery of the skills of double and triple tonguing became essential.
