I teach in a private high school and start many beginners as 9th graders.  I use Essential Elements 2000 to get the kids started quickly.  I want to switch one of my beginners on tenor trombone to a  F attachment trombone I have.  What method book recommendations do any of you have to introduce F attachment to a second year player?  Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

There are probably newer ones, but the old standby "F-Attachment and Bass Trombone" by Allen Ostrander is pretty good.  Simple enough that your student can easily follow.  Not a lot of information on care and feeding, but you will have to teach that.

If you can't find the Ostrander book Bruce mentioned, another good beginning bass trombone/F-attachment is Reginald Fink's "Introducing the F-Attachment" by Accura music.  You can find it at Hickey's and other web stores.  For the Ostrander, examine the book before buying it.  Ostrander produced several different method and etude books, and the titles can be confusing. 

Although it's out of print, George Robert's "Let's Play Bass Trombone" is an excellent beginner's method, if you can find a copy.

I was recommended O. Blume's 36 Studies for Trombone with F attachment. Quite a few of them are beyond my ability but there is plenty to do even so. They are good exercises.

The first part of my "New Method for the Modern Bass Trombone" covers thoroughly the F attachment, position by position, with clear annotation system for the F attachment positions, though a tenor trombonist may skip the low pedal exercises.

I started out on a real beater, old Conn, I do mean "old". I played this horn briefly and went straight to an F attachment. I just used the Rubanks book. It sure was alot easier because I can only reach 6th position.

Have them jump right into it. Worked for me.
