New Aharoni Method

Thursday, December 11th, 2008

The Non-Classic Bass TromboneMost bass trombonists are familiar with Eliezer Aharoni’s New Method for the Modern Bass Trombone. It’s a great resource, especially for those wanting to develop a solid low register. Aharoni recently wrote a new method for commercial and jazz (not improv) bass trombone chop development. The Non-Classic Bass Trombone also comes with two demo/play-along CDs. Micha Davis, bass trombonist in the Israel Philharmonic, performs on the discs. The text is 160 pages and sells for $40 at

Below are video excerpts featuring both Aharoni and Davis.

I don’t want this blog to become a YouTube portal, but I couldn’t stop laughing while watching this video.

Blast from the Past

Sunday, June 24th, 2007

This is a video from a Dallas television morning show when they came up to Denton to film the One O’Clock nearly nine years ago. The audio is terrible, but Tom Brantley still sounds great.

Latest Project

Recent additions to my portfolio include OSU Trombones, ITF2007, and the Getzen Gazette.
