HASH(0x93a53d50) out of 5 stars Perfect for Beginners 7 May 2007
By Leonard R. Wines - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I hadn't played a trumpet for over sixty years. So, I didn't think I could pick up a horn and start where I left off.

Instead, I made the wise decision to purchase this package. The DVD was perfect in getting me started again.

I didn't play the CD, which follows each exercise, using a CD player. I brought the CD into iTunes, which made using it very easy. I'm now up to Track 43 and, while I still have a long way to go for an eighty-year-old, I feel I'm getting there one day at a time.

Highly recommended (and worth the small amount Amazon is asking).

HASH(0x9e7cd9e0) out of 5 stars A great book 29 Mar. 2007
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book starts with the bare necessities. Every couple of lessons shows a new note and technique. It's easy to understand. The DVD that came with it shows how to hold the trumpet and what it should sound like. I learned enough that I figured out how to play other songs. I taught myself to play the Wallace and Gromit theme song.

I'm eleven years old.

HASH(0x94167cfc) out of 5 stars GREAT VALUE! 20 Jan. 2011
By Karen Alward - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My son who is 9 is teaching himself to play the trumpet off of this book. So far, so good! Definitely impressed! The DVD isn't very long but it sets a good foundation. Supplementing the DVD and book with YouTube videos works well too.

HASH(0x9418aef4) out of 5 stars WELL, YOU COULD HAVE FOOLED ME! 22 Jan. 2015
By StudentBern - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's an O.K. product, but the Title is misleading. Unless you are an Intermediate at a minimum, there's a lot missing. The premise of the packet is that the discs will lead you to self teaching, but some basic training is, first, required. Also the student must have a good ear for 'pitch.' The discs, basically, use a piano accompaniment. There is no trumpet sound to imitate, so a beginner is lost in the woods without a compass. I'm sure that once the student can run a scale without 'hunting and peckin' ' the studies will be beneficial. Additionally, I have not found any definitive Care and Maintenance instructions, herein, except for a cursory statement as to a need for such. Well, 'How To' would be nice! I found the best bet for that is "To Google It," Care and Maintenance, that is. Search the links - a couple are to the point and, verbally, lend some great tips.

Back to the product - What it contains is priced right and after the student gains some confidence, the practice studies will make he/she (one or the other, or 'What the Hell' - both) a better player down the road. I think that it is that I expected more from the Hal Leonard stable of music and instructions.

HASH(0x942a05a0) out of 5 stars Fine Beginner Method 25 Feb. 2008
By James D. Cook - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this method for my eleven year old son, who is learning trumpet as his third instrument. I like the selection of songs and the easy pace of the book. Also, the video isn't bad, but disappointing from the fact that the video and CD both primarily cover only the first few pages in the book.
