This wonderful three-part method is like a more modern and complete Arban or Saint-Jacome Grand Method, with much better progressive studies, along with tunes and solos that include full piano parts, followed up with duets, trios, and quartets to get the entire studio involved.
Compiled by L. Chumov, the former professor of trumpet at the Moscow Conservatory, this fantastic mixture of original compositions along side adaptations of the great composers of the 19th and 20th centuries is perfect for players at all levels. Honestly, this is like getting three books for the price of one, if not more. Chumov’s 90 Studies in Book One is worth the price of admission alone. The same goes for the duets, trios, AND the quartets in the final book. This is an incredible collection!
