The purpose of this document was to explore the pedagogical techniques of legato trombone. Professional trombone books, method books, articles and web-pages were surveyed in order to understand legato pedagogy and to see if there were changes over the past century or differences in pedagogy throughout world regions. The most common legato pedagogy was highlighted and used in comparison to pedagogy taught in three distinct areas of literature: trombone specific method books, brass method books for pre-service and in-service music educators, and beginning band methods. This comparison was used to reveal gaps between the pedagogical techniques shown in beginning band methods and those that are generally accepted by trombone pedagogues. Through this survey, those methods books which best apply the professional pedagogy are endorsed.
Tables containing comprehensive lists of trombone specific method books, brass method books for pre-service and in-service music educators, and beginning band methods are found in the appendices. These tables supply data concerning the legato pedagogy in each method book, which allows trombonists and music educators to quickly compare the pedagogy in method books. It is hoped that through this project the understanding of legato performance on trombone will increase. This will enable pedagogues of beginning, intermediate, and advanced trombone students to use the best possible and most personally adequate techniques in teaching legato trombone.
