never heard of it, any idea what its like before i go and buy it.....?
Its a complete method for trumpet playing - go through it properly, and so like any regime (with the appropriate instruction), you'll become a very strong player
And you need some other books to do it, kinda like a Chemistry course where you need the book, the lab book, and maybe another book or two. This is the same way. There's a list of books you need. I think I have about half of them. One of my goals is to get all the books and this "master" book and go through the program.
At least one more than I currently own.
hahaha i'm buying the book but i want to know if there is any other books i need to finnish the program
Start whit the main book! It probably contains a lot of info about the other books
I have completed the book twice.
I studied for 8 years with a student of Claude Gordon's.
How it wortks in general is there are 3-4 sections to the text.
Section 1 is a general flexibility section built around descending on Claude's 5 note pitch-centering lick followed by a myriad number of different flexibility type exercises. The idea is to progress as low as you can go one semi-tone (position) at a time.
The second part is range extensions of all different types. The idea is to ascend one semi-tone (position) at a time as high as you can to.
Then for the next two sections the text will reference material from the Clarke, Arbans, Irons, and so forth.
The texts I used during my study were primarily the Arbans, St Jacome, Irons, Colin Flexibilities, and of course, a number of etude collections.
Hope this helps a bit.
