Several months ago, I was disappointed to find that only two libraries in the country held Dokshitser's method book, and neither participated in the Interlibrary Loan Program; I thought I was out in the cold on being able to view this book by any means other than purchasing it for $88. ( http://www.rkingmusic.com/shop/product_view.asp?storeID=51B06D0337FB4EEFA60DF44DBA11A149&menu=0&pr=811541&seg=1&c0=102&c1=515&c2=952&type=Band/Choir/Orchestra&category=Soloists%20-%20Brass&subcategory=%3Cb%3ETrumpet%3C/b%3E&chkMatchQ=all&SaveCategory=&txtQuickSearch=trumpet)

Trumpet method : integrated exercise system
Author: Dokshitser, Timofei, 1921-2005.; Thompson, Wendy
Publication: Paris : A. Leduc, 1994

More recently, fortunately, I found references to the earlier French version, and discovered that 11 libraries in the US hold this copy. Apparently at least one was willing to participate in the ILL program, because it has now arrived at my local library and I'm anxiously awaiting picking it up today. So, for everyone who may have looked for it, here's a possibility for you.

Methode de trompette : systeme d'exercices complexes
Author: Dokshitser, Timofei, 1921-2005.
Publication: Paris : A. Leduc, 1990

Please post a review, I'm always interested in method books.

Yeah....curious about it! I have Dokshizer's 'Daily Drills and Studies' book.

I am not sure if this is the same, or another book...

'Daily Drills and Studies' is really interesting! Some very cool, unique studies and some very similar to traditional etudes, warm-ups.

I have the book, and have written about it here on my Dokshizer page:

P.S.
I bought the book from Switzerland

At this point, I can really only say that it would be nice to have the English version. Dokshitzer's technical explanations of proper technique, and descriptions of how to best use his method, appear to be quite detailed and informative, but I can't read French! It's obvious, though, from looking through the exercises that this is a no nonsense serious work intended for intermediate through advanced players. I suspect that even if you're already an accomplished player, the exercises offered in this method can help you become a really excellent player. As for the book's suitability for comeback players like myself, it looks like one of the best I've seen for gradually developing the fundamentals, especially a strong flexible embouchure.

Though there are some really difficult exercises here that I will very probably never be able to play, overall, it's a very impressive work. I'm looking forward to someday putting the English version on my music stand.

Kind of late joining this discussion. The Leduc edition is available in an English version. I have, and use, many of Dokshizer's books.

Also, if you want to research Dokshizer you'll find many different spellings of the name.

dbacon posted this in 2002 --

Dokchitzer-spelling from LeDuc Pub., Methode De Trompette
Dokschidzer-spelling from LeDuc Pub., Trumpet Method (English Translation, I have both.)
Dokshitser-Front of the CD, "The Best of Timofei Dokshitser," Marcophon.
Dokshitser-Back of the same CD.
Dokschitzer-"Trumpet Rhapsody." BMG CD.
Dokshizer-"Russian Treasures." ITG CD.
Dokshitser-"Concertpieces." Marcophon CD.
Dokshizer-"Trumpet Profiles." Louis Davidson, 1975.

and Atomlinson added --

How about Timofey Dokschidser from a Brass Bulletin article 1989 Issue 66 entitled "A story of the heart..."
