Daily Routines for Bass Trombone by David Vining is suitable for advanced high school through professional trombone players.
A daily routine is an integral part of any trombonist’s practice regimen. Daily Routines for Bass Trombone provides a systematic way to develop and improve fundamentals, helping to establish consistency in all areas of playing. There are nine routines, each divided into skill categories: long tones, crescendo/diminuendo, flexibility, subito dynamics, resonant low playing, articulation, slide technique, and high range and low warm-down. Additional resources included in this book are progress charts, an articulation spectrum, and supplemental long tones. Daily Routines for Bass Trombone ensures that players will be challenged in unique and helpful ways.
“In order for any trombonist to take the craft of brass playing seriously, they must have a method or philosophy about how to approach consistently improving on their instrument. David Vining's book Daily Routines provides a thorough approach to understanding how to efficiently play fundamentals at the highest level. The variety of the nine different half hour routines will keep this method feeling fresh and challenging for a long time. I highly recommend using Mr. Vining's Daily Routines for yourself and with your students.” - George Curran, Bass Trombone, New York Philharmonic
