Customer Reviews:


I recently received your book Sackbut Solutions, and find it to be the most complete tutor I have encountered in 60 years of messing about with trombones.  Unfortunately, I didn't order the CD at the same time, but when it did arrive I found it to be nearly as valuable as the book.  Now I know what a sackbut ought to sound like!'
