Manuscripts to share

Practice with the Experts – This is a very useful book for trombone technique. It was compiled by Paul Tanner who asked
many of his friend to each contribute one of their favorite exercises for inclusion. It’s amazing how balanced the book
ended up. There’s something for every problem, range, flexibility, endurance, power etc. You can tell by the condition of the
book, that I never used it much, lol. This book has been out of print for years and the publisher has indicated that it will
never be reprinted so I’m sharing it here. I hope that you find it as useful as I have.
