online music storeThe online music store is a recent addition to the website, offering Mp3s, sheet music and compositions for the trombone in the low brass ensemble format. While designed for the Low Brass Ensemble (trombone 1 and 2, euphonium, and tuba), the pieces are also fun as a play-along for the trombone or to start your own Low Brass Ensemble.

The music also works great as a feature for your Marching Band low brass section!

TROMBONE PERFORMANCE MUSIC RESOURCES FOR PLAYERS, STUDENTS, BAND & ORCHESTRA DIRECTORS

"The trombone is a member of the low brass family of musical instruments that encompasses the trombone, euphonium, and tuba. As the artistic performance of these three instruments share much common ground, you'll find some cross-over of tips, advice, and music resources.

It is my intent to build here a comprehensive library of articles, tips, and resources for the trombone and low brass artist, teacher, and student. If you'd like to help with this mission, send me your recommendations on the kind of material you'd like to see here. Contact me at: nbewley@woh.rr.com

Several resources are oriented towards the student and player: history of the trombone, choosing the right trombone for you, tips for trombone players and so on. Other articles and resources help the beginning trombone student, more advanced students and established players develop their mastery of the instrument and further enjoy their performance.

May these resources assist everyone involved and interested in Low Brass improve their musical performance, skills, and opportunities."
