The powerful low-end voice of the trombone is essential to all marching bands and offers a one-of-a-kind sound to classical ensembles around the world. Like any brass instrument, learning the trombone takes dedication and persistence, but the first stages go a lot smoother when you're in possession of a decent collection of general trombone instruction books to master your craft with. Thankfully, today's selection of general trombone instruction books is extensive, and this section alone is jam-packed with options from renowned music education publishers like KJOS, Meredith Music and Carl Fischer.

While it's definitely in your best interest to stock up on a variety of general trombone instruction books (versatility is what makes a great musician, after all), you should still consider your current skill level before making any brisk decisions. For example, if you played the trombone back in high school and recently decided to revisit the instrument, go with the Carl Fischer I Used to Play Trombone Book/CD. This book is specifically for adults who want to get re-acquainted with the trombone by reviewing theory and technique with etudes. It's filled with exercises in musical styles ranging from pop to jazz to classical, and the CD contains audio MP3 files of complete performances of most songs.

Intermediate trombonists have plenty of choices here, too. The Meredith Music Intermediate Studies For Developing Artists On Trombone/Euphonium features music from the 14th century up to the beginning of the 20th century from dozens of countries. Bursting with classical etudes and a number of jazz etudes that cover styles like Dixieland, Swing, Bebop and Latin forms, this instruction book is ideal for anyone who wants to expand their repertoire. Now for all you trombonists with university aspirations, the Carl Fischer Protocol: A Guide to the Collegiate Audition Process for Trombone Book is your ticket to the big leagues. Created by college and university music educators, you'll be sure to ace that audition with flying colors with this instruction book in your collection.

As you can see, there's really no reason why any enthusiastic trombonists can't own a wide variety of general trombone instruction books. Whether you have your eyes set on performing in a marching band, professional jazz quartet or even a ska band with friends, there's a general trombone instruction book for you in this catalog.
