These Twisted Technical Studies are a series of odd-meter variations on Herbert L. Clarke’s 2nd Technical Study. They are formulated to promote mindful practice for those brass musicians who have become intimately familiar with the Clarke Technical Studies over many years, while providing an accessible introduction to this type of technical practice for less experienced players. This 2nd Volume contains the same 8 variations from Volume 1, now all fully notated in all 7 Major Modes, and in all 12 keys.
This is the edition for Trombone and other Bass Clef instruments.
These exercises have been developed by Bryan Davis, a world-renowned Lead Trumpeter originally from the UK, who now lives and works in New York City. In addition to his busy playing schedule, Mr Davis has become one of the most sought after trumpet teachers working today; regularly consulting with players from all over the world. He is also increasingly well known for his instructional video series on YouTube, featuring his common sense approach to efficient brass playing and his mantra; “Go Practice!”.
Twisted Technical Studies, Volume 2 was originally published in March 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic. To this point, it has only been available as a PDF eBook. A Printed Edition will be published in mid 2023.
