New Method for The Modern Bass Trombone
is a 180 page book designed for a bass trombonist (at any level) to master any version and valve setup currently in use:
- Single Valve in F
- Single Valve with E pull
- Double Valve (side by side): Second valve in flat E, in E flat, and in D
- In line: B flat - F - G - E flat, B flat - F - G flat - D, and long tuning slide on 2nd valve
- New: Single valve in F with a sliding E extension ("Slex").
The book includes text covering the development of the bass trombone, discussing each valve setup of bass trombone and its advantages and disadvantages.
The book suggests a simplified, easy to operate annotation system; chart for each combination; specially tailored exercises for each valve setup.
The book's starting point is the single valve in F - the most basic equipment to begin Bass Trombone playing. Each new position is systematically introduced first with preparatory exercises, scales and arpeggios, incorporating the newly-learned valve notes with respective "straight horn" notes. Then specially-tailored comprehensive exercises follow, in diverse keys, meters and styles, for further mastering the respective position. Then pedal notes are introduced - the straight horn pedal notes and the respecting valve pedal note. at the end of each section are special exercises featuring the glissandos available with each setup.Eliezer Aharoni
