Carl Fischer is proud to present a new edition of the method of choice for generations of trumpet players. The New Authentic Edition of Arban¹s 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. Arban¹s 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.
