Ernst Gaetke writes of these studies: “These lip and tongue exercises have been written for the very purpose of passing with ease from the bass to the treble areas of the trombone range and visa versa. These exercises afford the only means of overcoming this difficulty, as the manipulation of the sliding-tube impedes execution in quick time, treating these movement as a purely mechanical action solely dependent upon a skillfully trained right arm. These exercises have been divided into sections systematically arranged according to the degrees of technical difficulty. They are written for each position, to force the pupil to study it in every position which, as experience has taught, he would not do, of his own accord.”
