I bought a trumpet 2 months ago. I'm 43, am a guitarist, can read well and am building up my chops. I'm hugely enjoying the instrument! I bought Arban and I'm using the first studies every day. It's going well. (I'm hitting the G above the line, although not effortlessly) I know that Arban is a progressive book, but in sections. Do you have any suggestions for which order I should do the exercises in? I know this is a question only a personal tutor can answer adequately, but there is no teacher near me (I live in the country) and I'm sure some of you folks can suggest studies later in the book which I should look at. Cheers!
