This compendium represents many years of experimentation, work and study. These variations are not meant to replace the originals, but to enhance them. In some case, such as Schlossberg, the variations begin easier so as to be accessible to more levels of players. In other cases, such as Stamp and CG tongue Level, the exercises are presented in a more logical order and with further instruction to help the student learn how to properly use the studies. Still others, like The Complete Arban Scales are expansions on what appeared in the original. And finally, you have some of my original studies.
Most sections have their own instructions, so I won’t go in to great detail here. Read and follow the practice instructions that appear at the beginning and end of each section.
Finally, I’d like to thank all my great students who inspired me and were my test subjects in this work.
