3/2/17 - Thanks so much for the shout out on Arban and His Method from the ITG Journal in October, 2015. Glad you like it!


I am finally working on the next version of AAHM which will feature a bass clef version, German and Spanish versions, and new editions of the Art of Phrasing as found in the National Library of France and the JW Pepper edition. Also, Arban's Petite Methode will be included in a future edition as well.


Thanks for the tremendous support!!!
