Full Range Studies for Trombone

Full Range Studies for TromboneFull Range Studies for Trombone

A complete system to develop and maintain your range, sound, endurance, and flexibility from Low E to Double High Bb … and beyond! (90 pages)

The Full Range Studies for Trombone book can be used by all trombone players, at any level of playing. Whether you’re a beginner, intermediate, advanced, comeback player, or professional – this book will be very valuable to you over the years to come.

The “FRS” system consists of 18 studies. One study of the 18 should be played every other day on a rotation basis (1, 2, 3, 4…17, 18), and three times a week is recommended. You will do the complete rotation every 6 weeks. Don’t try to play all of the studies in one day, these are meant to build you up, not beat you up.

Each study session will take you approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. If you rest correctly during the practice session, your embouchure should feel good, not beat up. If you feel beat up then you didn’t rest enough or you went too far in the study. Only go as far in each study as you can without playing incorrectly. It does no good to practice incorrect habits. If you want to work on your pedal register, simply extend the exercises down into the lower octaves.

FORTY-NINE LONG LOST ARBAN DUETS FOR TROMBONE (…that Arban never wrote!)

Forty-Nine Long Lost Arban Duets For TromboneFORTY-NINE LONG LOST ARBAN DUETS FOR TROMBONE (…that Arban never wrote!) 

The original studies written by J.B. Arban that are the basis for these forty-nine duets are among the most assigned, practiced, played, and reviewed by all brass players – beginner, intermediate, advanced, and pro alike. But there were never duets based on them… until now! Practicing and playing them with your friends, students, and colleagues will yield tremendous benefits for all involved.

These new duets are based on the studies starting with the Syncopation Studies 1-38 then the Fanfare Tonguing studies 135-145 that are right after all the double tongue studies. The book contains both parts. There is a separate duet book of the same duets for trumpet… so if your trumpet pals have their edition it’s easy to play the classic studies as duets with them too (or treble clef euphoniums too).

You can download some free sample duets from the book, click here for all info.
