Eric has in no way asked me to do this but I want to make you aware of a terrific thing that he has done for teachers and performers looking to get back in shape.
He has organized lessons to be given through the Arban book on a week to week basis that is really fun to look at and check out.
One would need to have a certain amount of ones trumpet act together first but it’s a well designed, imagination spurring work that deserves a big bravo. I have much respect for folks who go to a lot of work to organize things like this.

Everybody tells you to get the Arban book but then what? Just where do you go in a book that big? It isn’t broken into weekly lessons? Nobody wants to play a dozen pages of long tones or intervals in a row. HELP!!!
Now the mystery has been solved.
Eric Bolvin went and made a road map of the worlds most famous trumpet method. He takes you step by step and helps you to cover things in a logical and timely manner. (Now why didn’t I think of this?)
Thanks Eric this should be a great help to many players.
