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

  • thumbnail for Eileen Meyer Russell
  • 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."
