Daily Routines for Tenor 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 Tenor 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 Tenor Trombone ensures that players will be challenged in unique and helpful ways.
“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
