Hi everyone - I hope you are all having a great summer! Things have been busy here, but we’ve managed to get some good relaxing in as well. I know I’ve been posting a lot of video blog (vlog) entries this summer, and quite honestly, I’ve just been enjoying making videos and the process that goes in to that! I hope what I’ve made this summer has been interesting and helpful to you!
This week’s blog post is a little different. I’ve been working on an idea that’s been bouncing around inside my head for quite some time now, and it’s getting close to being ready. Every year, when I have new students starting lessons with me, I seem to take a week or two to get my footing. I find myself searching for music, trying to find old scale sheets on the version of Finale I had three years ago, etc. On too many occasions, I have found myself frantically writing out a new piece of music on the computer the night before a student’s lesson (or the hour before!). This becomes especially important when I have a beginner student that needs guidance. I decided to finally get all the materials I use with my young students together in one place, and package them together, along with a number of videos covering the fundamentals of trombone playing, as well as a complete warmup and daily routine for beginner students.
