Solo Training for Trombone by Dan Barrett is suitable for high school through professional trombone players.
Solo Training for Trombone features etudes based on original solos for trombone, including:
Cavatine by Saint-Saëns
Andante and Allegro by Barat
Sonata #1 by Galliard
Sonata in F Major by Marcello
Morceau Symphonique by Guilmant
Concerto by Rimsky-Korsakov
Concertino by David
Grand Concerto by Grafe
The routines in Solo Training provide a means for preparing these standard solos while also cultivating technique and musicianship. The principals of overtraining, transposing, and bridge-building are used throughout. Solo Training presents examples to get your mind thinking of creative ways to teach yourself, so you can generate exercises that will remedy the difficulties you encounter elsewhere.
"Whether you're a young student discovering this music for the first time, or a seasoned pro preparing for your next solo appearance, these exercises will provide tremendous help in a new and creative way that allows one to 'cross train' and overcome these challenges as well as develop or maintain solid fundamentals. Dan Barrett has composed fun and effective etudes that all will find helpful. I am happy to endorse these etudes and look forward to trying them in my own performing and teaching. Bravo!" - James Nova, Trombone, Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra; Adjunct Professor of Trombone, Duquesne University
