The Arban, Klose and Concone methods are universally accepted as the foremost music instruction books available. Unfortunately, only a favoured few in a particular phase of music study can benefit from the material presented in these methods, and, consequently, many are deprived of the benefits of a logical approach to the various technical problems. In an endeavour to rectify the situation, progressive studies from Arban, Klose & Concone have been adapted for multiple trumpets and arranged in a flexible manner that will permit them to be used for individual lessons, class instruction, or full studio rehearsal. Teacher and student alike will find in this method a series of studies that give all players an equal opportunity to develop.
Each lesson is divided into two parts: One the study in unison and the other the accompanying band parts. After all players have played the unison study, the teacher may assign any instrument, or combination of instruments to play the study, while the balance of the group plays the accompaniment. To make the rehearsal more interesting and enjoyable the accompaniment is in the style of a standard band arrangement, with complete harmony, rhythm, and counter melodies. This necessitates dividing the accompaniment in some of the studies into an “A” First Part and “B” Second Part. However, these parts are not identical, but are voiced for the individual players.
