Descrizione prodotto


After 30 years of service and performing as its premier cornet soloist, Fredric Erdman retired from the United States Marine Band, "The President's Own," and currently resides in Arlington, VA. James Erdman retired after 20 years with the Marine Band, serving as the band's principle trombonist and soloist. He presently teaches trombone as a member of the music faculty of Lebanon Valley College and makes his home in Mt. Gretna, Pennsylvania. The book's narrator, Timothy Erdman, spent nine years in the Marine Band alongside his brothers before leaving to pursue a career in business writing. A resident of Lebanon, Pennsylvania and a former principal trumpet with The Harrisburg Syimphony, he is a free lance writer; teaches public speaking and writing at the Reading Area Community College; and conducts the Lebanon Community Concert Band.

5.0 su 5 stelle A wonderfully written book by my friend 17 agosto 2016

A wonderfully written book by my friend, Timothy Erdman about his years in the United Stated Marine Band. He served along with his two brothers who were all in the Band at the same time and made Marine Band history. I was a close friend of most members of the Band and so I enjoyed reading this book immensely since I could relate to almost all of the stories and people mentioned. I would highly recommend it...great reading!

5.0 su 5 stelle An Inside Look 19 luglio 2014
Di Erik O. Ronningen - Pubblicato su
Acquisto verificato
Under the John Phillip Susa baton of Colonel Albert F. Schoepper, this is the recounting of thirty of the best years of The United States Marine Band, “The Presidents Own.” Told from the perspective (eyes, cornets, and trombone) of the three Erdman brothers, Fred, Jim, and Tim, it is an inside look of the daily activities, concerts and tours, and the nearly impossible demand for perfection by its conductor on his bandsmen for “Guaranteed Notes;” no missed, chipped, or wrong notes in any performance.

At no other time in the history of the Marine Band has it ever had three family members performing concurrently. Their stories, wonderfully arranged and narrated by brother Tim, cornet, into the harmony, and occasional disharmony that are the individual personalities of performers in crowded stress-filled circumstances, takes the reader from hometown Lebanon, Pennsylvania, thirty treasured years in the Marine Band, full circle again to retirement.

Join the Erdman brothers and the band during rehearsals, performances in the White House, funerals at Arlington Cemetery, Parades and Tattoos at Eighth and I, concerts at the Capital plaza and on the barge at Watergate. Feel the biting cold wind performing at presidential inaugurations, and the joy of playing foxtrots at the evening balls. Tax your will, embrasure, and endurance to the limit living aboard buses and questionable hotel accommodations during the annual, grinding sixty-three-day, sixty-three-city national tour of America performing two concerts a day without letup. And you will begin to understand why this, The United States Marine Band, “The Presidents Own” is acknowledged by its peers as the best military symphonic concert band in the world.

Di Karl Glenn - Pubblicato su

"Guaranteed Notes: Memoirs of the Three Erdman Brothers and The United States Marine Band, 'The President's Own'," is a must read for every college-age aspiring professional musician. Taken from its title, the book opens with an incident during one of the band's annual 9-week, 2 concerts a day, 7 days a week cross country tours. Colonel Albert F. Schoepper, Leader of the Marine Band (1955-1972), issued a proclamation: "You must guarantee me ALL the notes," no missed, chipped, or wrong notes are tolerated. The discipline and perfection of performance demanded by Col Schoepper was felt by every member of the band and especially by the band's premier soloists Fredric and James Erdman, the book's authors.

Through direct quotes and stories of performances and people in the U.S. Marine Band, the book is constructed in ways that give the reader what it is actually like to be a professional musician. The pressures of practicing, rehearsing, performing, and recording every day are described in full detail by Fredric Erdman who as featured cornet soloist, played 537 times in ten of the 22 tours that he made with band, and as first chair solo cornet, performed 838 times with the band over a thirty-year career. His younger brother James served as both principal trombonist (first chair) and trombone soloist throughout his twenty year career. "It takes the right kind of personality with an abundance of confidence, endurance, and discipline to produce those 'Guaranteed Notes'."

Karl Glenn, USMB (1959-63)

5.0 su 5 stelle A must read for all musicians 9 gennaio 2014
Di John R Zimmerman - Pubblicato su

All musicians should take the time to read "Guaranteed Notes" featuring the Erdman brothers and their incredible contributions to "The President's Own" US Marine Band, Washington DC. Under the direction of Colonel Albert F Schoepper, Fred and Jim Erdman performed solos at the highest professional level ever heard, anywhere. Challenged by the the high standards of perfection set by the Director, Fred and Jim established a legacy of flawless performances that will never be matched. It was difficult enough just soloing under the Colonel, but Fred and Jim also held solo chairs with incredible responsibilities.

Tim was a welcome addition to the Marine Band, fulfilling his dream of joining his brothers thus establishing the famous Erdman brothers' trio. It was Tim's other talents that made this book come alive with his artistry of the written word.

Bravo to Fred, Jim and Tim on another outstanding performance.

Captain John R Zimmerman
US Marine Band (Ret.)
