    It might be nice if we knew who "Alex" is and what his qualifications are.

    Looks like his name is Alex Sutherland. There's a little about his qualifications under the "About" tab.

    After looking over the website, that was my question?

    I was also surprised that the website uses a video of Arturo!! but not Alex?

    The mystery of "ALEX" :dontknow:

    Can't find a thing out about Alex Sutherland that sheds any light on who he is or what he has done. It does bother me that you are "buying" public domain MP3's as part of the package. To me that's akin to someone reprinting brochures created by the government then selling them as part of their program for prosperity. His take on instrument finish is interesting and notion that all you have to practice is 20 minutes a day is very interesting. All this $99 value for just $49. Something tells me I'm going to keep playing through Arban's.

    I've just been looking through his website, and I think that the stuff on it could really work! The way that he uses methods that people have been using for hundreds of years really makes me think this is a revolutionary new method of playing the trumpet!

    Do you get a trumpet with all the dents in it like the one on his site?

    I remember buying a Mad magazine many years ago, There was a cartoon with a street corner with 4 churches and 2 billboards. The one billboard said THOU SHALT NOT LIE!!!! the second: Promise her anything, but buy her Arp├ęge.
