    I think no matter how many people debate it's worth, the Arban is definitely one book to own, and I would think the Clarkes and the Schlossberg Daily Drills and Technical Studies are good to have too, beyond that it's just a matter of personal preference.

    Arban defiantly, collins lip flex is a must aswel, vizzuttis books are very good aswel and for jazz the Aebersold books are good along with something like pattens for jazz

    Finally someone who jumped in with the basics.

    Those three have anything and everything a player could ever need to become technically and musically proficient if used correctly with the right instruction.

    Looks like I'm on the right track, I use all of these great books -

    I just added one more to my list because clarke was geting alittle boring so I picked up
    " Variations on Clarke’s Second Study, Volume One: 24 melodic variations through the 7 modes of the major scale, for trumpet, by Rich Willey. "

    This book is a stroke of genius as far as I'm concerned !! :thumbsup:

    I do "the Schlossberg" daily (sounds like a goofy dance) and I use a book that I can't find anymore, Extended Trumpet Range by Dr. Marty Deutch, I really enjoy that book.

    I also "make my own" book - I think that's important to all of us. A hodge-podge of exercises and what-not that I've accumulated.
