Daily Warm-up and Maintenance Exercises.
The exercises in this book are designed to fill a vital need for daily warm-up and maintenance material written specifically for the double valve bass trombone. Although they are intended to be played on a double valve bass trombone with dedicated valves in F&D, the exercises can also be played on an in-line double valve bass trombone. The focus of these exercises is to instruct players with the technique necessary to achieve a rich, full sound, precise intonation, and agile flexibility in the valve and pedal registers.
