Going through a cupboard at my mum's place on Christmas day, I found a very old copy of J. B. Arban's Cornet Method. It belonged to my dad who would have used it in the 60s. This edition pre-dates the 60s I'm sure (thick brown paper cover, black cloth binding) so I reckon the old man bought it second hand. It's in good condition too . Well, tonight I started. The first page of exercises (page 11) is done, a couple of hundred left to go! I must say, I really liked it. It felt like I was really working and stretching. I'll keep at it and might even get the Arban Manual to offer some guidance. I posted the other day about getting a new trumpet (New Horn Day) so it really felt like a mix of the old and new. When things are done right, there's no reason to change, I guess. Sorry, no question here. I just thought I'd share about the latest addition of my trumpet journey.
