"A friend of mine who is going to Berklee College of Music recommended your book. He used it before his audition and got right into an ensemble. I'm hoping it does the same for me, I'm planning on going next year." -- A. Johnson, St. Petersburg, FL
<br /><br />"Thanks Bruce, these books are kicking my "---"!. I'm going to work on them awhile before I give them to my students." --D.L., New York, NY
From the Publisher
Practicing is more productive and far more fun when you have the help of a tireless friend; in this case your computer. These books are the first of their kind, using the internet as a teaching tool. All the written exercises provided have audio counterparts which can be downloaded from the Internet. Mr Arnold has taught at some of the most prestigious universities in the world, and these books are the result of seventeen years of experience. He has observed his student's most common musical problems, elicited their input, and the results are the Bruce Arnold Series of Music Workbooks, addressing both harmonic and rhythmic issues. These books are geared to the seriously dedicated musician, whether beginning or professional, and will provide a lifetime's worth of study and inspiration.
We are very excited about Mr. Arnold's innovative instruction series. We believe that this series of books will help more students and professional musicians to perfect their technique and reading skills through the use of an interactive "practice partner." We know of no other books to compare with them; they are truly a teaching method for the New Millennium!
