There is perhaps no other brass pedagogue whose teachings are so misunderstood and maligned than as that of Dr. Donald S. Reinhardt and his Pivot System for all brass instruments.

Master Class with Robin Eubanks: Getting a Clean Attack 
Articulation and sound are two important factors in making the trombone more attractive to people's ears. Besides sound, articulation is the thing that really separates trombone players. Articulation is not just tonguing; it covers a lot of ground—slide technique, the air support stream that you have, control of your embouchure, as well as tonguing.
