Variations On Great Trumpet Methods By Eric Bolvin


Digital Download

A culmination of 40 years of teaching trumpet using the great methods of Clarke, Arban, Stamp and St. Jacome, I have often been frustrated by the lack of beginning and intermediate material available in these staples of trumpet practice. So I began modifying the studies for each student. The result is this amazing compendium of the greatest trumpet studies ever written, for the first time presented so that all levels of players, from the beginner to the professional, can achieve the highest level of success from them.

This compilation includes variations on H.L. Clarke, Schlossberg, Arban, St. Jacome, Stamp, Walter M. Smith, Claude Gordon and more! Practice routines and suggestions included with most variations so you can get right to it. 181 pages packed with great exercises and instruction.

From the foreword, By Eric Bolvin:

This compendium represents many years of experimentation, work and study. These variations are not meant to replace the originals, but to enhance them. In some case, such as Schlossberg, the variations begin easier so as to be accessible to more levels of players. In other cases, such as Stamp and CG tongue Level, the exercises are presented in a more logical order and with further instruction to help the student learn how to properly use the studies. Still others, like The Complete Arban Scales are expansions on what appeared in the original. And finally, you have some of my original studies. Most sections have their own instructions, so I won’t go in to great detail here. Read and follow the practice instructions that appear at the beginning and end of each section.

Finally, I’d like to thank all my great students who inspired me and were my test subjects in this work.

Happy Trumpeting!!
