Freedom For Musicians is well into changing the world of “Notes”.
Seems to be an affair of the heart where you are pouring in everything you have. And the results are coming through load and crystal clear.
Amazing how proud you should be the emotions behind which are like music to my ears.

Thanks for providing a fabulous platform
As a musician myself I really love what I’m seeing here. I don’t perform professionally any more but did so for many years with my partner. These days we still write, record and play and are in the process of creating an archive website for our back catalog to live on. We were slogging away way before Facebook, Youtube and all the other social platforms existed.
A Quiet Revolution
Freedom for Musicians seems like a really innovative concept for musicians to promote and distribute their digital music. I admire the work you are doing in this industry to solve the problem of exploitation by the big labels and distributors. I look forward to seeing the success of Freedom for Musicians.
Freedom For Musicians are raising funds for our fantastic musical friends in Uganda. They need to buy instruments to continue the fantastic work already being done by the David Kiwana Wind Orchestra.

With no public funding, these brilliant young musicians rely on kind donations to buy and repair their instruments. I am raising money to not only provide an equipment fund, but to provide tuition and a professional digital recording which they can sell to provide a small income and sustainable funding. This will be released through FFM Records. Please help us help them with any donation you can manage by visiting Gofundme.
The Arban Method (La grande méthode complète de cornet à piston et de saxhorn par Arban) is a complete pedagogical method for students of trumpet, cornet, and other brass instruments. The original edition was published by Jean-Baptiste Arban sometime before 1859 and is currently in print. It contains hundreds of exercises, ranging in difficulty. The method begins with basic exercises and progresses to very advanced compositions, including the famous arrangement of Carnival of Venice.
Below you will find three of the main sections of the Arban which you can download for free totally legally.
Timofei Dokshizer was born on December 13th, 1921 in the town of Nezhin, Ukraine to the family of musicians. He received his initial education at the Glazunov Music College in Moscow under the tutelage of Ivan Vasilevsky. He continued his studies at the Central Music School in the class of professor Mikhail Tabakov. In 1950, Dokshizer graduated from the Gnessin’s Music Institute under the supervision of the same professor. Mr. Dokshizer received his Master Degree in conducting from the Moscow State Conservatory in 1957, studying with Leo Ginzburg.
At age 19, Timofei Dokshizer won the Soviet-Union brass instruments’ players competition and in 1947, Mr. Dokshizer won the International Competition in Prague, which jumpstarted his performance career. From that point on, his profound artistry and creativity set a standard of excellence for other trumpeters to follow.
He frequently toured the USSR and abroad, winning aclaim from critics who praised his timber, beautiful tone, unique phrasing, and filigree technique. In addition to his solo performances, Dokshizer worked at the Bolshoi Theatre of Opera and Ballet in Moscow. Here, he was revered for his brilliant renditions of some of the most difficult orchestral trumpet solos, particularly in Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake,” Prokofiev’s “War and Peace” and “Romeo and Juliet,” Khachaturian’s “Spartacus,” and many others.
His Repertoire was incredibly vast and included nearly everything ever written for the trumpet, along with works previously arranged for the instrument, from Bach, Haydn, Hummel, Albinoni and Vivaldi to his contemporaries, Shostakovich, Wainberg, Schedrin, Gershwin and others. Many works performed by Timofei Dokshizer were his own transcriptions, of which there were over 80 along the course of his lifetime. Among these were popular miniatures, originally written for violin, piano or voice by Kreisler, Sarasate, Debussy, Ravel, Rimsky-Korsakov, Rubinstein, Rachmaninoff, Chopin and he often included his own cadenzas for concerti by Haydn, Hummel and Arutiunian. Mr. Dokshizer was responsible for a tremendous expansion of trumpet repertoire, both through his own contribution to the art form and through compositions written especially for him throughout his life.
Nearly a quarter century of Mr. Dokshizer’s career was dedicated to pedagogical work. He was a professor at the Gnessin’s Music Institute and has brought up scores of talented trumpet players. He has left behind invaluable teaching materials. Mr. Dokshizer conducted and adjudicated countless teaching seminars, master classes, international competitions and festivals. He moved to Vilnius, Lithuania in 1990 where he lived until his passing on March 16, 2005.
