    Good book. I have used to teach my 5 and 10 year old. However, a more advanced and progressive book is Rubrank's elementary for trumpet and coronet.

  • February 07, 2007 A great book for a beginner!

    When I was in fifth grade band this was the book that I used. I learned very quickly from it and the songs were fun and easy to play. I recommend this book to anyone who has just started band or wants to teach theirselves how to play.
