New York, NY — Carl Fischer is proud to present Arban’s Famous Method for Trombone Platinum Edition Book/CD (O23PE - $39.95) to celebrate over 500,000 copies sold of the quintessential original edition by Joseph Jean-Baptiste Laurent Arban. The classic edition that has served as the method of choice for generations of trombone players, Arban’s Famous Method offers the student a comprehensive system of study for the trombone, including scales, etudes, duets, solos, and extensive exercises designed to develop musicianship and technique.
The Platinum Edition comes with exciting new features including comb-binding for easier use, a handsome new Platinum Edition cover, plus a piano accompaniment CD for the 12 Fantaisies contained in the book, including “Fantaisie and Variations on a Cavatina,” “Fantaisie Brillante,” “Caprice and Variations,” “The Carnival of Venice,” and more.
In addition to the Platinum Edition, Carl Fischer Music also announced the recent release of My First Arban Book 2: Trumpet, the perfect follow-up to the popular method My First Arban (O5504 - $6.95 Fall 2008). Suitable for use with or without a private instructor, developing students further cultivate the technical and flexibility exercises essential to the mastery of brass instruments. Book 2 builds on the skills presented in the first book while bridging the gap that will eventually lead the student into the celebrated Arban’s Complete Conservatory Method for Trumpet. Students and teachers alike will benefit greatly from the opportunity to continue the course of study presented in the Arban series.
