Carl Fischer is proud to present a new edition of the method of choice for generations of trombone and baritone players. Arban's Method for Trombone 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 trombone performer and teacher Alan Raph, adding some of his own insights with respect to how the trombone and baritone are taught today. The Arban Method for Trombone is the definitive must-have for all trombone players. With this masterful new edition and all of its extra resources, the Arban will remain the driving force in Brass education for generations to come.
