Saint-Jacome’s Grand Method for Trumpet or Cornet is one of the two great pillars of trumpet methodology with Arban’s Complete Conservatory Method for Trumpet. The Grand Method has provided trumpet players with the necessary foundation for success on the instrument for generations since its publications in 1870. This edition was edited by the great Edwin Franko Goldman. Goldman added clarifications and some contemporary considerations, yet is careful to retain the intended instruction of Saint-Jacome.
“Understanding the historical development of the cornet/trumpet and the different styles and techniques from various periods is of utmost importance to anyone who wishes to have a comprehensive conception of playing.” – Wynton Marsalis
In addition, this edition includes Duets and Studies by Saint-Jacome as well as the 36 Celebrated Studies by Bousquet, all edited by the legendary bandmaster Edwin Franko Goldman. Available for the first time in digital form, qPress is extremely proud to offer the St. Jacome method. Samples to the left, and immediate digital download above. Enjoy!
