I have read articles describing how to migrate from SBS 2003 to Windows Server 2008/Exchange 2010.  Will this basic procedure work for Windows Server 2012/Exchange 2013?

Nope. Very different. In fact, there is no direct path between exchange 2003 (a part of SBS 2003)and exchange 2013. So that alone makes the migration story significantly more complex.

Since I am buying volume licensing, I can deploy Exchange 2010.  Can I deploy exchange 2010 on Windows Server 2012 instead of Windows Server 2008 R2 and migrate?

Yes, with the appropriate update rollups. TechNet has exchange migration guides. You will need to follow the exchange guides, not SBS guides, due to that customized stack.

If you buy a volume license then you can also downgrade a 2012 VM to 2008 R2 and migrate to a 2010/2008 R2 combination and then migrate to 2012 and 2013.
