There are over 150 musical examples using Edwards’ fantastic composition style – original works that address foundational trombone issues in a musical and thoughtful manner… This method should become a standard, much as the Lip Slurs has.”

ITA Journal Online Review, February, 2019

The Intermediate Trombonist — along with an excellent instructor, a metronome, a tuner, and a way to record yourself — will be a perfect way to move your trombone playing forward to an exciting new level.
