    So where do you guys always go to get your trumpet books? Do you go to Amazon, or the local music store? I just want to see what you do to convince me to go one way or the other. Happy Playing!

    It depends on where you live. Large cities tend to have well-stocked music stores. I live in NYC, I rarely buy music online.

    Since we know you are in Ohio you shoudn't have any problem finding a full service music store. If that doesn't work try Sheet music of Portland. It is a very good store in Portland, Oregon. They are always at trumpet guild with a truck load of music and books. I have been to their store in Portland and they are a reputable store. Try your home town first. Help keep your local music store in business.

    Well I live in the middle of nowhere up in the northeast corner. The closest city is Mentor then Cleveland. To mentor would take 45 minutes at least and Cleveland takes 1 hr ast least. My parents aren't big drivers unless they are looking for something, plus I don't know many music stores in those areas. Pennsylvania is the other possibility but I don't want to drive forever looking for a store which we don't even know what they have to offer. Since I am my rural area, I will most likely shop on Amazon. That is just my best way of getting what I need, unless you know a place nearby that has good books (such as Arbans and Irons). Thanks for the input though.

    Go with the internet. Living in a big city can spoil you. Shop around for the best deals on the web.
    Good hunting,

    I agree with Mr Wise. I've been lucky with Ebay. As long as the books aren't marked up too bad, you might get something a little cheaper this way.

    Sheet Music Plus is pretty good. Robert King is a great place to get stuff...but the website is a little frustrating.

    You can get "The Total Embouchure" on line thru e-bay for very cheap ($5.99) as an e-book download. Read the comments about it from people who have bought it....apparently its pretty good!


    Cheers

    Stanton Music in Columbus or Volkwein Music in Pittsburgh.
    Maybe too far on both accounts.
