    Just type in "trumpet method pdf" in your search engine. My favorite is Dogpile Web Search ; I like it better than Google, and it includes Google results.

    To learn what? Breathing, Body use, Mental exercizes? Cleaning instruments, Assembling a music stand, putting batteries in a metronome?

    The Arban is choc full goodness, in fact there's so much goodness that some guidance is needed to step through exercises appropriate to your level (and level of ambition). The above-mentioned Eric Bolvin has a book available as hard copy or a pdf download the provides a sequence that you can follow.
    The Arban Manual - Bolvin Music Studios - still not a substitute for a good teacher, but certainly very helpful.

    It's not free, but at $12.95, you just need to find one "nugget" its pages and the investment will have paid dividends.

    Tobylou, thanks for the reminder about Balquhidder music. I had a browse there and found myself a nugget (and coughed up for a book ++++postage to Oz).

    What I have found in the past were his "Long Tone" studies, misnamed "Flow Studies".
