Ear Training for Trombone is one of the first methods to integrate performance on the instrument with singing to enable the player to internalize the music. Written by David Vining, a leading brass educator with extensive orchestral, chamber, and solo performance experience, Ear Training for Trombone is a comprehensive and progressively organized method for improving the ear of students on any brass instrument. In turn, this brings marked improvement in tone, intonation, pitch accuracy, and musical understanding. The book contains more than 70 exercises in pitch, scales, arpeggios, and intervals, including melodious etudes and orchestral excerpts. A brass equivalent of the ear training method is long overdue, and this book is appropriate for not only young students, but brass students of all ages.
One of the most important basic skills of developing musicianship in young students is ear acuity. Solfeggio with the voice has traditionally been one of the tools to accomplish this goal. Ear Training for Trombone by David Vining is one of the first methods to integrate performance on the instrument with solfeggio to enable the student to internalize the music in his mind. When intervals are internalized in the mind, tone, intonation and accuracy become much more reliable and consistent. If trombonists follow the directions for the use of this book there can be a remarkable improvement in listening skills. I recommend this book, not only for young trombonists, but trombonists of all ages.
