While retaining the essence of the original edition, this one introduces many new chapters, and detailed instructions for all exercises, making it suitable for both aspiring and skilled trombone players, from amateur level to top-drawer pros.
Why practice flexibility?
Good flexibility ensures that you can play longer, more complex pieces without fatigue setting in prematurely. Simply put, flexibility isn’t just a skill; it’s the path to more durable and versatile trombone playing.
You’ll find exercises that may challenge your current practices, nudging you gently (and sometimes, a bit firmly) out of your comfort zone. But stick with it. This isn’t about immediate gratification but a long-term investment in your trombone playing.
