Carl Fischer Music Releases a New Edition of Hering’s
Forty Progressive Etudes for Trombone with CD
40 Progressive Etudes

New York, NY — Carl Fischer Music is pleased to announce an update of a classic favorite: Sigmund Hering’s Forty Progressive Etudes for Trombone (O4441X – Book and CD – $17.95). From one of the most prolifically published brass pedagogues of the twentieth century, this essential method contains forty etudes that are perfect for the developing trombone or baritone player. Ideal for intermediate students, the etudes are organized in a progressive manner, challenging students as they improve. This revised edition contains a CD featuring recordings of all etudes performed by John Drew, Professor of Trombone at Florida State University.

John Drew joined the faculty of Florida State University in 1980. Since that time he has been active as soloist and clinician, including frequent appearances at both the Eastern Trombone Workshops and the International Trombone Festivals. International solo venues have included The Netherlands and Australia, including the Sydney Opera House. In 1992 he became the first recipient of the International Trombone Association’s Outstanding Teaching Award. In addition to his teaching responsibilities, Dr. Drew is principal trombonist with the Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra and a member of the Florida State Brass Quintet, whose tours have included performances in the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall and throughout the United States and Europe. In 2002 he completed a term as President of the International Trombone Association and in 2007 became President of the International Trombone Festival. Currently he is the Coordinator of Winds and Percussion in the College of Music at Florida State University.
