Trombone basics sheet music

Trombone basics from the member’s section

Flexibility: Large intervals

3 pages of challenging sheet music where the objective is to be able to use limber trombone flexibility also when playing larger intervals. You’ll work on the full range of your trombone.

Lip trills

Since trombones don’t have valves like their brass siblings, we need to be able to play lip trills. Those french horn and trumpet players have no clue how skilled we actually are at this ? Play these exercises and get even more skilled!

Articulation basics

Many brass players have sloppy articulation. This gets especially obvious on the slide trombone. You don’t want to unintentionally slide around between notes due to bad articulation. This trombone lesson will let you improve both your legato, staccato and tenuto playing.

Flexibility with pedal tones

Flexibility (aka the ability to rapidly and effortlessly change range when playing trombone) is an important basic skill. This trombone lesson incorporates pedal tones to give it another healthy dimension.

High range glissando

This is a simple but surprisingly effective trombone high-range exercise. Slide your way into the stratosphere.

Crescendo with full control

This one is a great chops diagnostic tool. It won’t work properly unless airflow is big and open and lips are buzzing freely.

Always keep an eye or three on the interaction with your instrument – does it feel and sound right? 4 pages of intense sheet music.

Midrange Kickoff

This is a warmup beast that I have used a lot over the years. It takes some time and can be a bit boring, but it is time and boredom well spent. 

12-minute warmup

A condensed version of my thorough warmup. You don’t always have time (or need) for a 43-minute warmup, sometimes life and music come in the way. That’s fine – work with what you’ve got any given day.

Improve your playing in five minutes

Yes – I know the headline sounds a bit cheesy… It might actually take you 6 minutes! it is a simple glissando warmup exercise designed to improve your sound instantly, but doing it daily for a period of time is even better. Go slide!

Trombone concertos sheet music

Classic trombone originals from the member’s section

Ferdinand David’s Concertino for Trombone

A classic! Take a listen before diving in if you aren’t familiar with this one.

Lars Erikson Larsson Trombone Concertino

This is one of my favorites. Both because it is beautiful music and the composer is Swedish (like me) and have a beautiful last name ?. Although challenging enough, the concerto is not the most unplayable out there.

Many brass players have sloppy articulation. This gets especially obvious on the slide trombone. You don’t want to unintentionally slide around between notes due to bad articulation. This trombone lesson will let you improve both your legato, staccato and tenuto playing.

Blue Bells of Scotland

Another trombone classic. Access the sheet music for it in the member’s section.
