Welcome to BoneTips:
A Collection of Helpful Tips for Trombonists

Much of the information in this section is inspired by the teachings of Arnold Jacobs and David Fedderly. In fact, I suspect the voices of all my teachers can be heard through my own comments: Jim Olin, Milt Stevens, Tony Chipurn, Ron Borror, Don Zegel and Henry Schmidt. I owe them all a deep debt of gratitude. I hope you find something here that may be of use.
