    Hello, just wondering whether anyone knew the excercises from the Arban that Mr. Howarth used and compiled in this piece for the solo part?
    I know a few, but i'm trying to find all of them, but i'm not going to play through the entire book just to find them! :lol:

    Page 106 No.9 is the theme, it goes back to the days when he was having lessons at the Royal Manchester College of Music with a great trumpet teacher called Cecil Kidd. It was used as a sound exercise, probably the most difficult exercise one could get, done properly.

    I agree Mr James but in the American Arban it's P 106 No 44.

    That's my excuse for always getting numbers wrong. :wink:

    Strangely enough it's difficult in mine as well in the correct pitch and even down a 5th, but it is getting better - honest.

    Hear you made trumpet players who auditioned for the BBC Scottish audition with another favourite of mine!!!!!!!!!!

    I appreciate that you've worked at it :oops: All the talking is done with the bell end and I've got the message.
