    We were fortunate enough to sit down with Doc Severinsen a few weeks ago thanks to the kind folks over at S.E. Shires.

    He was a blast to talk with. We decided to use the opportunity to create a new weekly video series called Doc Days of Summer. It's going to run for about 20 weeks through the summer and into fall every Humpday.

    Each episode is a brief take on a different facet of trumpet playing. The first one is on articulation. Check it out below and subscribe if you want to see them right when they come out.

    Hope you like them!

    In my much older Arban (ca 1954) these are half note slurs. Is this the same exercise?

    I'm a 2 year come back after 50 years and for me playing those exercises as Doc said is more of a challenge than one might think. I would not have thought of them as he has.

    By the way I saw Doc and his big band October 2013 and was blown away by this "senior citizen" blowing the roof off the house. He and his band received a standing ovation of at least 10 minutes.

    No, they're not easy - and it should be noted that Doc knows the Arban book as well as anybody out there. He's a true student of the trumpet - and picked that exercise for a reason.

    When I input the "TM" code it doesn't give a discount or free shipping @ check-out. Do you guys give the discount before charging for the order? I have my order on hold because it was giving me the full price total and charging for shipping.

    Uhoh. I just tried it and it worked fine.

    Once you go into the shopping bag enter the code and apply. Code is "TM". Try going into the payment method screen and see if it is applied there.

    If you don't want to mess with it then just PayPal the correct amount to [email protected] and leave us a note.

    Sorry for the problems and thanks for your order!
