Is there any way for me to get ahold of this method book?
Rots O Ruck.... Rare as hen's teeth....
... And his "method" starts with a genuine Parduba #5 mouthpiece as he played since playing trumpet with Benny Goodman's orchestra. Like so many other method books, it is just as likely a publisher's paid artist endorsement put together by someone else and just as similar to so many other method books.
There is one available on Amazon--used for $546.74 including the shipping. I suspect you will have some time to gather the money if you need it.
It was a collaboration between Harry and his father Everette James.
It is a method book, yes. Similar to others, hard to say. There is quite a bit packed into that small book.
Yes, there is some way for you to get ahold of the Harry James Trumpet Method. Please contact me for more information
They come up on Ebay regularly, for not more than a few dollars, $25 or so.
I have my own copy and have sold two copies on Ebay.
I found one and purchased it from an antique store last fall.
You'll have to pry it from my cold dead fingers.
Harry's personal method was a drinking water glass full of Beefeaters gin to warm up............. Back then they couldn't write stuff like that in a method book.
I seem to remember reading somewhere that Harry's father (who was his first teacher) required that his son master a page in the Arban's daily. Now that's a method!
