Slama’s “66 Etudes in all Major and Minor Keys” is suitable for players of the trombone, tuba, baritone, bassoon, or string bass. As a professor at the Vienna Conservatory, Anton Slama wrote these studies as guide for his students in mastering the complexity of distant tonalities not often found in the traditional repertoire of bass instruments. As modern music brought extended tonalities, it also brought a need for modern players to play fluently in all keys, in all styles, with dexterity and facility in all registers. These studies give you the skills you need with enough material to keep even a seasoned professional busy for years.
