Got my Arban Complete Method over the weekend. I've been playing about 2 years but I wanted to start right from the beginning no matter how simple. I was surprised and a little disturbed that exercise 7 already used a high G and by exercise 22 it was high A! And some of these even had the fingerings still listed under the notes. So how could this be, that it's considered basic enough to include fingerings, yet the notes are already on top of the staff? Just seems like poor educational design, like including the word "fragmentation" in an ABC's book (well the first couple pages of Arban). Then again it's Arban - THE Trumpet Method! What gives?
