Grigoriev 50 Etudes for Bass Trombone & Tenor Trombone with F Attachment

Usually ships in 24 hours.

Product Description

The 50 Etudes by Boris Grigoriev are inspiring and diverse examples of romantic etude writing. Originally written for tuba, they are transposed and adapted for tenor and bass trombone by Randall Hawes, bass trombonist of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.

Mastering the use of alternate positions is a crucial building block to developing excellent slide technique leading to a smooth and beautiful legato sound. The common sense use of the valves—and slurring while using the valves—are essential skills. Mr. Hawes offers instructive text and musical examples to achieve these goals.

  1. We need more like this

    Posted by snipbtb on 7th Aug 2012

    This is a very important book for bass trombonists. It is about playing musically with good sound in the low register. You must read and follow the instructions on page 4. Understand the symbols used in the book for valves on in-line and dependent bass trombones. If you just start playing the studies without knowing what Hawes is saying you are going to miss a lot. It is nice to have the little dictionary of musical terms. Also good to list the metronome markings separately from the etudes. (like etude ten is tempo Scherzando, Hawes suggests a tempo of 84 in the tempo list on page 4). All in all I give this book five stars. I wish we had more literature of this quality.

  2. Nice Book

    This book is really nice, but not more than that. It came a bit wrinkled and I think that for 39$ shipping they could have done a better job wrapping and protecting it.

  3. Good Stuff

    I just got Mr. Hawes new book. His instructions for the music are fantastic! It is good to get clear info on valves from a top pro. I say, get this book!
