Jim Nova will be joining us today. He is a tremendous talent and resource. I encourage you to ask about his career, auditions, teaching and creative pursuits.
In today's session we will be covering Great Texts in the trombone liturgy - mainly focusing on methods, drills, warm-up and fundamental study and work through etude study. We will discuss everything from Arban to Uber in methods and Alessi to Whitaker in routines.
Jim Nova and I will discuss/debate areas of teaching pedagogy as it realtes to collegiate course curriculum, flow and focus. We invite you, to provide input and ask insightful questions as it relates to the trombone literature. I will try to keep the conversation for the first half of the class focused on our study of Brass Literature. I will record the discussions and you will be responsible for the material covered on our final exam so feel free to take notes.
