Not sure how I would label this. Favorite Book? Most Hated Book? Most Challenging Book? Definitely the book I learned the most from.
I just purchased a new copy, my old copy from 64 years ago was falling apart. It's been used and abused and then cherished!

Best

The Saint-Jacome Manual by Eric Bolvin. A common sense guide to a Grand Method has become a favorite.

The Thibaud Series By Pierre Thibaud. It gets into everything. It's easy to measure progress.

The Rene Laurent Enseignement de la Trompette by Rene Laurent. A welcome surprised I enjoyed how well I was prepared to play music rather than run patterns.

There've been many books I wasn't prepared for. Back to practice.

Coming from French horn (40+ years) to trumpet, I remembered all the trumpet players at school clutching their Arban's, so I got one to work from. I wondered at the time if it was totally out dated, but since it was available I thought someone must still use it. I was not disappointed. Although I did not reach even a semblance of dexterity, it was fun to try, and there was always something new. My end goal was Carnival of Venice, and, well at least I could play the first part!
