|Product Details||This delightful book by Sandra Downing makes learning the alto clef a pleasure. Orchestral trombonists are expected to be able to read all four clefs. Whilst Alto Clef is not encountered as frequently as Bass and Tenor clefs, many major orchestral works are printed entirely in Alto Clef for 1st and 2nd tombones. Sandra takes you through beautiful melodies which are not only fun to play they are great to listen to. If you do as Sandra says, you will be playing alto clef immediately and naturally. In only a week or so you will wonder what all the fuss was about!|
