The Arban book is talked about as being the Trumpet Bible. That implies a kind of completeness. This is simply not the case.
There are some good exercises but there is also a great deal of space devoted to younger players. A lot of both the Art of phrasing and the duets is easily mastered.
There is NO range work in the English versions. The multiple tonguing is on a basic level. And A great deal of the last 50 pages is also simple.
Lets face it a lot of High School players take the Carnival of Venice to solo contest or college auditions.
The book NEEDS a great deal of suppliments.
And even this is a partial list. But these are important.
