The original edition was published by Jean-Baptiste Cobservatory sometime before and is currently in print. The method begins with basic exercises and progresses to very advanced compositions, including compelte famous arrangement of Carnival of Venice. In the Introduction J. Arban covers the range of the cornet trumpet. He also details alternate fingerings and describes the use of the tuning slide.

Arban states his opinion that the mouthpiece should be two-thirds on the lower lip and one-third on the upper.

Herbert Lincoln Clarke recommends the mouthpiece to rest half upper lip and half lower lip. Arban then stresses the proper “attack” technique. He uses the “tu” pronunciation, which in French is said with the tongue in the “tee” position. Arban concludes with proper breathing technique see diaphragmatic breathing. Arban then begins his method with a focus on tone Studies The next studies familiarize the student with fingerings, develop his or her range, and instill a habit of precision in attacking the notes.

In the next section, which is devoted to syncopation, goes from a simple quarter-half-quarter rhythm to a sixteenth-eighth-sixteenth repeated rhythm. Next, Arban focuses on the dotted eighth-sixteenth and eighth-double sixteenth rhythms. Professor Arban devotes the next section of his vast method to slurring or legato playing. He begins with simple slurs that are accomplished by the variation of valves. He suggests pronouncing “taw-ee” while playing.

Such a technique is also needed to accomplish trills. He concludes this section with a series of advanced studies combining slurred and staccato playing. Arban’s series on scales includes studies of major, minor, and chromatic scales, as well as numerous variations thereof.

Arban admits to giving minor scales “limited treatment,” but Consevatory refutes this by citing the nonexistence of “limits on the use of the Trumpet and Cornet. Next, Arban teaches the student the various ornaments that can be played on a trumpet or cornet.

He details copmlete simple appoggiaturagrace note short appoggiaturaportamento, double appoggiatura, the turnthe trilland the mordent. Arban concludes the fourth section by combining the various ornaments and integrating them into various tunes. The “more advanced studies” include studies on intervals; broken octaves and tenths; triplets; the four-sixteenth rhythmic figure; major and minor arpeggios; the dominant seventh arpeggio; and cadenzas. Next, Arban focuses on conservatoy tonguing, double tonguing, and fanfare tonguing.

Arban uses various “tu-ku” pronunciation combinations, and Gordon subsequently replaces these with “tee-kee” combinations. The Art of Phrasing was written by Arban trummpetbut was never added to the original French edition of the Method.

This new version added 28 duets entitled 28 Recreations, 32 Melodies, and Art of the Phrasing songs. Carl Fischer and J. Pepper also added the Art of Phrasing to their Arban Methods in the late s. As in his other aeban, Arban progresses from simple pieces to more challenging ones. All of these, however, require their performers to be synchronized with one another. Before his final 12 fantasias, Arban provides 14 challenging characteristic studies.

His concluding remarks preceding these conservqtory as follows:. Those of my readers who…want to attain…perfection, should…try to hear good music well interpreted. They must seek out…the most illustrious models, and…purify their taste, verify their sentiments, and bring themselves as near as possible to that which is beautiful.

These passages are challenging and are longer than all of the previous sections’ pieces. In addition to the eleven fantasias fantasies for B-flat cornets, there is one for the A cornet “Fantasie and Variations on Acteon”. Arban’s celebrated composition “Fantasie and Turmpet on The Carnival of Venice ” is the eleventh fantasia in the list.
