    Vade Mecum du Trombonist

    Spiral bound. This Vade Mecum is intended principally for students preparing for advanced examinations. It will also be a valuable guide to those who, having completed their studies, wish to keep up their technique.

    Part One lays emphasis on various technical points which are often neglected: minor common chords, diminished sevenths, melodic minor scales, high and low scales throughout the range of the instrument, and chromatic scales progressing in thirds.

    Part Two presents a scale of an octave in semiquavers, each degree of which is the starting point for a further scale. Each scale is followed by its chords: common, major, minor, augmented or diminished. The seven degrees and the octave are dealt with first in ascending, then in descending order. This scale which is reproduced in all the major and minor keys, makes up a total of 30 exercises. It is, therefore, simple to use it for daily study by practicing each day of every month the scale s whose number corresponds to that day.

    Part Three groups together 25 fairly difficult studies, covering the principal technical difficulties inherent in the instrument. Here again, practice will be easy to organize, by making a judicious selection of one or two studies in keeping with the performer's technical shortcomings, or according to the examination for which he is preparing, or again, in relation to the piece which he is to perform. - the composer.
