Subject: The Elias Modern Scientific Trumpet Method

I am making available "The Elias Modern Scientific Trumpet Method", which contains the "Complete Elias Buzz System", by the late Fred Elias.

This book was originally published in 1927.

Mr. Elias is referenced in the endorsements to "Double High C in 37 Weeks" as
1. Former student of the late Herbert L. Clarke.
2. Former Cornet Soloist with the U.S. Navy Band
3. Former Trumpeter and Soloist with the Omaha Symphony Orchestra
4. Famed originator of the Elias Buzz System, method of teaching brass players.

Clyde Hunt, when researching his book "Sail the Seven C's" came across Mr. Elias' book and refers to it on his web page.

Way back in  1927, his book talks of free buzzing, pedal tones, and instructions for "Building the embouchure for an octave above High C"
