A Life In The Day of a Trombone [Bass Clef]


From the Publisher

"... Head of composition at the RNCM, Adam Gorb writes in a familiar contemporary language, but his ideas sound fresh and his student works hold a lot of appeal. This set of six pieces describes specific times in a day, with witty titles such as "No civilised person goes to bed the same day he gets up". Teenagers of Grades 7 -8 will find the music in touch with urban teenage life, and will especially enjoy performing the lazy swing-feel piece. Although as with most modern writing there is not a lot of scope for expression beyond what's notated, there are plenty of technical hurdles to overcome."
