Advice for the Back Row: Good Ensemble Habits for the Trombone Section

Clinic Synopsis:

The clinic begins with the questions “Is the trombone section frustrated and are they frustrating you?" and "What are the factors that work against the success of the trombone section." My intent is to answer those questions so that you and your trombone section can work together in the most productive and musical way.
