I wanted to make a page that would give to the trumpet community forever. Too many players around the world have no good source of info and lack books. So to solve that I am giving away my biggest book. I hope that this helps players all over the world to improve.
Free 7200 pages as of 6/14/2019.
I am the only teacher to ever write a book this big 985 pages and to give it away for FREE. I have so much more info and can help any player so contact me for more tips and lessons.

The Arban book has been the mainstay of Trumpet practice for well over 100 years. However; no revisions have ever been made to the exercises in it. The range in the Arban book was stuck at the top of the staff; with a few limited High Cs included. For example there were 16 exercises for the C scale. Only 1 of the 16 had a high C in it. The majority of exercises were written for what is now a middle school range. This is a problem because to expand you range, you have to practice to the top note of your range every day. If you only play 3-10 high Cs a day then High D will NEVER become a good note. I took exercises from the major sections of the book and some songs and raised them step by step up to Double High C. I also included over 200 pages of my original exercises. The New Arban Book is 985 pages.
This is an extended range exercise based on Brandt #1 that I wrote. Pops Extended Brandt #1

Back in the stone age when I was learning to play there was no New Expanded Arban, Clarke, Concerto book… (That is why I wrote them). I had top use Clarinet and Sax books to get written notes above high C. Yes the clarinet will have some pedal F and Es. Get over it and play them. These are the 2 non trumpet books I used.
