Daily Routines for the Student Trombone Player by David Vining is appropriate for junior high and high school trombone players.
Daily Routines for the Student Trombone Player is a systematic approach to help student trombonists develop and maintain fundamental trombone skills. Designed to challenge students but not overwhelm them, there are nine routines: Beginning, Air, Smears and Natural Slurs, Intermediate, Ear Training, F Attachment, Duet and Intonation, Tenor Clef, and Advanced Routine. Each routine incorporates the following skill categories: long tones and mouthpiece buzzing, crescendo/diminuendo, flexibility, subito dynamics, resonant low playing, articulation and slide technique, high range, and low warm-down. By applying these skill categories as a template to each routine, students are sure to develop all of their skills equally.
“I am always grateful when a great performer goes to the trouble to organize his/her thoughts and make them available. David Vining has done just that in his book, Daily Routines. These routines are masterfully conceived. They exhibit exceptional balance, ingenuity, and insight. Mr. Vining saves us many steps by organizing tried and true material, adding his own astute innovations and explaining the procedures that produce technical mastery.” - Mike Hall, International Trombone Association Journal
