Arban Dance Band Play-Alongs By Erik Veldkamp


Digital Download

What if we reimagined the studies, solos, and theme and variations from the Arban’s Complete Conservatory Method for Trumpet and turned them into polka-style dance band play alongs? Well, Erik Veldkamp did just that!

It might sound crazy, but it isn’t. Taking music we play all the time and adding a new twist or innovation is exactly what we need to give a jolt of inspiration to both our practice and our performances. Perfect for studio practice, recitals, or just plain fun, these solos are guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Below I have attached audio of Erik performing two selections and included the sample pages to follow along in the gallery. Give them a listen then click above for an immediate digital download.

Your purchase includes the full book of solos plus a set of MP3s of both backing tracks AND demo recordings by Erik Veldkamp himself.
