This month, we’d like to introduce you to a very special method for learning to play brass instruments: Crescendo – Die Posaunenchorschule. As its name – The Trombone Choir Method – indicates, it’s particularly suitable for brass players starting out in a trombone choir or those desiring to get better, and it’s also written in the key of C. Various subjects are covered: it helps you read music, you learn about breathing techniques, keys, rhythm and much more. Even if you already know how to play an instrument, you’re sure to find interesting études and relevant information. All explanations are provided with descriptive graphics, making the method especially suited to children but also helpful to older players. In the back, you’ll find a collection of two-part songs and recital pieces. Even a Christmas section is included. Color-coded indexes help you navigate the various sections quickly and invite you to browse the contents. The coil binding is practical and makes leafing through the pages and standing up the whole book very simple.
With education and support for young players becoming more and more important, methods like this are what is needed to make good progress and have fun at the same time.
You’re welcome to find out for yourself in our shop or do a little browsing. We also carry numerous other methods and études for brass instruments, both in trombone choir and orchestral notation.
