Letters from New York: Carmine Caruso and the Six Notes 
In the previous Letters From New York article, an anecdotal and very personal overview of how Caruso taught, I discussed Caruso's concepts and techniques, and described some of the basic ideas from which those techniques grew.

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.


Masterclass with Art Baron: An Introduction to the Plunger 
The important thing is to do a lot of listening and get a sense of what plunger work is about. It's a whole emotional thing. You really have to want to speak through the horn. The plunger will kick your butt, but it's also a lot of fun. If you're into really communicating when you play, there's a lot there for you.


Masterclass with Benny Powell: Presentation And Programming Tips For Trombonists 
When you get ready to program either a trombone performance or a trombone recording you have to take into consideration how long the trombone can hold people's interest. You have to be a little more creative and give the listeners constant surprises.


Masterclass with Conrad Herwig: An Introduction to Doodle Tonguing 
Doodle tonguing, like any technique, will give you freedom, and that's all we want, control. You can stick to one system, like tunnel vision, but if we're looking ahead to the future--to what I call "twenty-first century trombone playing"--what we really need is an all-inclusive system, and doodle tonguing is a key element of that.
