Abstract

Despite the prominence of trombone quartets for student trombonists, there is a lack of pedagogical and performance technique literature related to the genre. Consequently, this project seeks to provide a much-needed resource that developing ensembles and instructors can use to hone their craft and enjoy a more productive quartet experience. This guide for trombone quartets will provide ensembles with fundamental knowledge concerning important aspects of trombone quartet performance such as rehearsal technique, collaboration, logistics, repertoire, and specific musical elements. This essay draws upon an analysis of chamber music literature and resources, interviews with prominent professionals, and the personal experience of the author. The research conducted for the essay informs the resulting guide for performance.
