Comments about Alfred Accent on Achievement Bb Trumpet Book 1 with CD:
I use this series for my Elementary Instrumental Music classes. It is layed out well, starts the instruments in a good range, and progresses logically. The full-band arrangements could definitely be left out without being missed. The CD is really good for keeping time and pitch for the beginning exercises. After the first couple of pages, the tempo is a bit too fast for the students to practice with until they have mastered the piece. Be warned...the covers will fall off quickly. Increase the life by keeping it in a folder. This book is my preference over Essential Elements but as with any book, it helps to suppliment with outside material.
