The Grand Conservatory Method for Cornet by Jean Baptiste Arban was first published in 1864 by Leon Escudier of Paris. In honor of the 150th anniversary of its publication, I am releasing this amazing book for the iPad.

This 21st-century digital edition features text annotations, audio annotations, bookmarks, wireless printing, go to page, find text, and a quick find multi-page grid. In addition, an interactive timeline of Arban's life as well as significant events in the evolution of the method is included.

Now with The Art of Phrasing songs and the duets found in the first American Edition and new solos from the first British Edition!

Great Job

But Arban is still a very flawed and dubious source for brass pedagogy.

The author needs to check out Felix Desiré Ligner. He was likely a student but a much more intuitive and correct teacher.


Can't wait for the bass clef edition!

I'm completely delighted with this app.... A much - needed resource. When the bass-clef edition comes in, it'll be worth twice the price!
