This study is divided into five chapters: the first chapter describes the purpose, methodology, and organization of the study. The second chapter provides a brief sketch of the evolution of the valved trumpet and trumpet writing in the late 19 and early 20 centuries and also includes a brief description of the life and career of Theo Charlier. The third chapter describes the general characteristics of the etude book and includes an assessment of the ordering of the etudes, the titles and keys of the etudes, and the distribution pattern of the textual notes. The fourth chapter, which is the most extensive, discusses each etude individually, giving a brief overview of the etude, a short discussion of its formal characteristics, the most significant performance challenges of each etude are identified and described, and then a number of practical strategies are given for each etude. Conclusions and suggestions for further research are given in Chapter Five.
