All 14 Arban Characteristic Studies played by Dorival Puccini

May 2, 2016 by · 3 Comments

Arban 14 Studies - Dorival PucciniAll 14 Arban Characteristic Studies played by Dorival Puccini

Watch and listen to Dorival Puccini (of the Axiom Brass Quintet) play and give practice tips commentary to the 14 characteristic studies of the Arban Complete Conservatory Method for Trumpet.

So you can easily follow along if you don’t have an Arban book, you can open or download the 14 Studies PDF file to print, watch, and practice these 14 studies. Or if you would like to purchase the complete Arban book for trumpet, here is one that I recommend for those who purchase my books The Comeback Trumpet Player and The Advancing Trumpet player – get Arban book.

The Advancing Trumpet Player (ATP) and The Comeback Trumpet Player (CTP) books both contain 52 lesson plans that include studies from the Arban book as one of the practice sessions. The lesson plans progressively guide you in a step-by-step and balanced practice approach that contains a few studies from each section of the Arban book to give you a complete daily practice session to steadily improve all aspects of your playing. This is not done by just going one page after another but rather by a special planned approach to working through all of the Arban book which includes ultimately playing the 14 characteristic studies as part of the plan. There are differences between the ATP and CTP books: ATP has extra emphasis in the tonality studies on multiple tonguing (TK, K, TTK, TKT) all of the scales and arpeggios, plus the ATP has a few more Full Range Studies (10 instead of 4 in the CTP). You can see full details on both books and free samples, and how to order them and other books at http://mphmusic.com/trumpet

Here’s how to watch and learn from the video below:

All 14 characteristic studies are accessible in this video player. To see all of the studies, click the top left corner where you see the three lines and little arrow. A selector window will open. You can then select which study you want to video, and then close the selector window using the X at the top right of that window.

I hope you enjoyed hearing Dorival play and also appreciated his wonderful practice tips commentary too.

As always, my best to you —

Mark Hendricks
