Slama was a trombonist by trade, and these etudes represent some of his pedagogical thinking on the instrument. They are technical in nature, with focus primarily on arpeggiation, diatonic scalar passages, sequential motives and leaps of the octave. Originally published in 1836. These Etudes are the same as the "Basic Studies," "Studies" and "Melodic Technique" books published by other publishers. -cdp
