Comments about Hal Leonard Essential Elements for Band - Bb Trumpet (Book 1 with EEi):
As a parent it can be difficult to know the right way on how to start your child in music is. As a musician you'd think it is trivial but for me I honestly had no idea what to put in front of my son to start learning the trumpet. Sure there are the "must haves" (Arban Method and Clarke Studies) but they would be overwhelming for a child who is just starting at the age of 5, those books will come later when he is ready. As it is I really didn't want to start teaching him until 3rd or 4th grade but he really has drive for it now and has a great sound on the bugle! This book may be a bit much as well but I did find the introduction and beginning exercises to be very good and easy to explain to him. The simple one line exercises are not very difficult and he can easily comprehend what he is learning. Additionally, playing along with him really keeps him motivated to practice. This book, in combination with learning piano, will make for some good learning over the next 5 or so years. Really looking for to enjoy this book together for one of many father son activities!
