Quick Overview

Alan Raph has adapted trumpet virtuoso David Baldwin’s Lips of Steel method for the trombone, and now trombone players can experience tremendous satisfaction when reaching the end of a piece with strength, resilience, and breath remaining for that last note! In other words, playing with endurance. Baldwin wasn’t born with this ability – he learned it, and Raph’s edition allows trombone players to learn it too.
