Master the Arban Method for Trumpet

Does This Sound Familiar?

You’ve probably heard that “any trumpet player worth their salt plays out of the Arban” or that it’s the “trumpet bible.” So you bought the book…only to realize it’s over 340 pages! Many trumpet players struggle with the Arban and eventually toss it to collect dust. Are you:

If this sounds like you, I’m confident I can help! This workshop is designed to introduce the Arban Conservatory Method for Trumpet to you in a way that makes sense, much like a manual, so you can finally understand the complexities of this gigantic book.

Register for an in-depth exploration of the iconic Arban method and discover how to leverage its timeless exercises to enhance your trumpet playing.

Who Should Attend?

Ideal for late beginners and advanced players alike, this webinar will provide valuable insights and strategies to help you maximize your practice sessions and achieve your musical goals. Range does play a role here, so look below to see how you will benefit from this workshop:

I DO NOT recommend this workshop for absolute beginners. If you’ve only been playing the trumpet a few months this workshop will be too difficult for you. However, you are still welcome to attend if you want to learn about what’s ahead.

Still wondering if it’s for you? Email me and I’m happy to make a recommendation for you.
