Carl Fischer is proud to present a new edition of the method of choice for generations of trumpet players, now for the tuba. Arbanas Complete Conservatory Method for Tuba contains the same tried and true comprehensive system of study that Arban developed over a century ago, and this completely re-engraved edition has been painstakingly edited by prominent tuba performer and teacher, Mike W. Roylance. In re-editing the method, Roylance has kept the Arban system intact, while adding some of his own insights with respect to how the tuba is taught today. Purists and modernists alike will welcome this new edition. Arbanas time-tested pedagogical sequence has also been given a fresh new layout for easier reading.
The Arban Complete Conservatory Method for Tuba is the definitive must-have for all tuba players. With this masterful new edition and all of its extra resources, the Arban will remain the driving force in brass education for generations to come.
AA wonderful addition to the tuba repertoire from the well-respected tuba player and pedagogue, Mike Roylance.

In yet another testimony to the endurance of the Arban Method, Carl Fisher Music has enlisted the expertise of Boston Symphony Principal Tubist, Mike Roylance, in creating a new edition for low-brass enthusiasts.A While keeping a lot of the historical markings of the original Arban, Roylance has brought his own ideas into the mix, showing that the Arban ideas are just as helpful today as they were when trumpet and cornet players first started to explore this method book 160 years ago.
