Hi trumpet cats;
Ever wonder why Arban has so many scale exercises in the key of C (16) but not so many in all the other keys? Most of the other keys only have 6 exercises while Db, B and F# are seriously under-repped at a measly 1 study!
So I’ve created The Complete Arban Scales, a 60-page FREE download that has all 16 of Arban’s scale studies in every key. ::: Eric Bolvin Music Studios - Publications ::: ARBAN MANUAL
Not only are these great scale studies but they are quite useful as range exercises. I’ve organized them chromatically so you can start at C and add a ˝ step at a time.
Feel free to download, copy, print and share.
And while you’re there, please have a look at some of my trumpet publications:
Tongue Level & Air
26 Lessons To Efficient Trumpet Playing
Lesson Plan & Manuscript Book
A weekly lesson planner
The Modern Jazz Trumpet Method
A course of study for the advancing jazz trumpet player
The Arban Manual
A 69 lesson course that takes you through the entire Arban Method.
The Big Book Of Pentatonics & Fourths
A method of practice for the ambitious musician
The Really Big Student Songbook
174 songs for all instruments and levels.
PS. If anyone has the LeDuc edition of Arban in 3 volumes, let me know if all the scale studies are in that edition.
Thanks and happy practicing!!
