Bass Trombone Method Books

Bass trombonists have always had difficulty finding good methods and resources to learn from, probably because of the comparative newness of the modern double valve bass trombone when compared to other brass – especially the tenor trombone.

Allen Ostrander: Method for Bass Trombone (and F attachment for Tenor Trombone)

Allen Ostrander: Method for Bass Trombone (and F attachment for Tenor Trombone)

First published in 1948, this study book was created with a bass trombone student at Julliard in mind, making it one of the earliest study guides designed specifically for the bass trombone. While it focuses exclusively on the F valve and related E/flat-F tunings, it remains an excellent resource, especially for intermediate players or tenor trombonists looking to expand their range into the lower registers.

The book features a range of exercises focused on valve use, as well as progressive etudes and orchestral excerpts to help players develop their skills.
