Jean Baptiste Arban
Complete Conservatory Method for Trumpet
Edited by Thomas Hooten and Jennifer Marotta
CD Performance of 14 Characteristic Studies by Thomas Hooten

Carl Fischer is proud to present a new edition of the method of choice for generations of trumpet players. The New Authentic Edition of Arban’s Complete Conservatory Method contains the same tried and true comprehensive system of study that Arban developed over a century ago, and this completely re-engraved edition has been painstakingly edited by prominent trumpet performers and teachers Thomas Hooten and Jennifer Marotta.

In re-editing the method, Hooten and Marotta have kept the Arban system intact, while adding some of their own insights with respect to how trumpet is taught today. Purists and modernists alike will welcome this new edition. Arban’s time-tested pedagogical sequence has also been given a fresh new layout for easier reading.

As an added bonus, the enclosed CD contains spectacular performances by Thomas Hooten of all of the 14 Characteristic Studies as well as piano accompaniments for the Fantasies performed by John Walker. All tracks are in MP3 format and can be downloaded to your desktop or MP3 player / iPod. The CD also contains the original text from the first edition of the Arban method in PDF form, including multi-language translations.

The Arban Complete Conservatory Method is the definitive must-have for all trumpet players. With this masterful new edition and all of its extra resources, the Arban will remain the driving force in trumpet education for generations to come.

Jean Baptiste Arban
Method for Trombone and Baritone B.C.

Revised for Trombone by Charles L. Randall and Simone Mantia
Edited by Alan Raph

Arban's fundamental method book for trumpet was first published in 1864 and has held a top spot in trumpet studies ever since. In 1936, two of the finest trombonists of the day, Charles Randall and Simone Mantia, revised the method for trombone, creating the basis for trombone studies over the ensuing 75 years.

Today, Alan Raph brings the Arban into the 21st century, enhancing and expanding the complete Arban text, and addressing new skills and techniques developed up to current times. Sections have been expanded (i.e., scales, arpeggios), and new sections have been added (i.e., slide drills, contemporary forms of double and triple tonguing). Alternate positions have been updated and expanded. Sometimes F-attachment positions are given to facilitate awkward slide movements.

Raph's exceptional edition also includes a CD of MP3 accompaniments to the 12 Celebrated Fantaisies and Airs Variés, as performed by John Walker, for a complete instructional package for trombone students.
