I am delivering a course on Trombone Techniques at Wilfrid Laurier University and revisited some techniques on producing your first sound on the trombone. I referred to a great book by Scott Whitener called "A Complete Guide to Brass" and it recommended thinking about different syllables when tonguing and releasing the air and attempting those first sounds on the mouth piece. Brilliant. You never know what gem you will find in the literature so keep reading. Keep that thirst for knowledge.
