Bass Trombone Craft is a comprehensive approach to building the technical skills needed to play music well. Here’s a quick summary:

- Motivation through musical interest: If students like a piece, they are more likely to spend extra time polishing it.

- Ideas are linked and reinforced: One section discusses valve choices for a key and is followed by short pieces in that key.

- Pieces of reasonable length: Get to the point quickly using short exercises and half-page etudes.

- A greater variety of key signatures: Don’t get stuck in that B-flat / E-flat rut.

- Help with rhythm: Some pages zoom in on common rhythm trouble spots, such as the deadly dotted-eighth sixteenth.

- Cross-referencing to other books: A big time-saver in lessons!

- Patterns to be memorized: Scale and arpeggio patterns with musical shape.

Bonus appendices focusing on special areas including:

  • Developing the Legato Tongue
  • Double and Triple Tonguing
  • Pattern Building (scales and arpeggios)
  • Interval Accuracy
  • Developing the High Range
  • Tone and Tuning Exercises
  • Introduction to Tenor and Alto Clef
  • Flow Exercises (sing, buzz, play)
