I am very excited to finally have Clodomir’s epic, two part trombone method available for download! This book currently sells for $40 PER PART at retail, so it will remain at qPress at half price to get it into more people’s hands. Here is an outline:
Part one begins with explanatory material (in French) relating to the elements of music and quickly moves on to the fundamentals of trombone playing. The playing begins with exercises in each of the 7 positions, then scale work, then syncopation, articulation, embellishments, minor scales, triplets, 16ths, and legato playing. Book one is all about fundamentals and concludes with etudes and duets, which are at an intermediate to advanced level. This wealth of technical material is well suited to the preparation of traditional French trombone material.
Part two reviews scales and arpeggios in all keys then moves on to the main thrust of the book, which is etudes and duets. Etudes are written as Theme and Variations, polkas, boleros, and many other styles. It also includes three extended concert duets.
This method is a great find if you have never tried it and it offers a considerable amount of technical material suitable for building technique. There are many many samples to the left, check them out then purchase an immediate PDF download above.
