Wow, a dad who will pick up the trombone and play duets with his son.  I wish I had had that.

When I recently set out to learn the cello i was attracted to the "Dotzauer Violoncellschule" method because almost every exercise has both a "student" part and a "teacher" part.  Duets! Which i plugged into my computer to play along with.

Of course, you will need to pick and choose among them for suitability but most are quite accessible and lie well within a normal trombone range.

It's Public Domain and free on the internet for you to download and print out.

And now I want to hear how he got kicked out of band in one month.  :D


And I want to hear how your cello is coming?!  LOL!

I actually considered learning the cello if I loose my wind and can't blow anymore.
But at one time I was studying classical (spanish) guitar, so that's my choice now.

hal leonard has lotsa  duets

  lotsa ez  duets 


Just a followup post.  He got into band this year and is doing great!  I'm not playing with him as often now because I'm usually making his supper during practice time since the neighbor complained about the noise after 8 ( geese ), but he has learned to practice well on his own and is sticking with it.  Those duets have done the trick!   Thanks!  :D

Are you planning on losing your wind?  Some years, ago at a Euphonium recital, I met a guy who started playing Euphonium when he was too old to continue playing cello.  (His problem was arthritis.)

Duets with a stronger player are a great way for young players to learn about intonation, projection, musicianship, etc..  I hope Tenuki and son are still doing well.

Wow, that impressive, Robert, you give me the hope that I learning a string instrument might not be impossible for someone used to brass.
I was doubly impressed that you could get sound out of weed-eater string!
Sounds much better with bona fide strings tho. Good!
 
I have some respiratory issues, but I have no intention of giving up on the horn anytime soon.  The cello was/is my back-up plan for continuing to make music if it comes to that.  Although I do have a touch of arthritis in my hands also (I hate getting old!!!!).
At some point I may not be able to play anything but the radio, LOL!

Keep up the good work! Good!

Thanks! I did take two years of beginner viola lessons in college.  I didn't get any good at it but it did help inform the cello stuff now.

I will admit that progress is harder to come by after that first year. :/

If you're going to take up a string instrument, do the cello!  Way easier in terms of ergonomics than violin or viola and easier to carry around than a bass.


btw, if you ever want to see hysterical internet hand-wringing, panic and indignation... go to the internet cello forum and reveal that you're thinking of teaching yourself the cello and that you're not planning to spend $3000 on a starter instrument.  :D

Got a link?

sounds a bit like the time a whole bunch of us were banned from the Starling Lovers Forum.

Turned out somebody checked and realized we were all members of the Airgun Forum.

That was my thinking exactly!  It sits on the floor, takes physical little effort to play.  I have an old violin but even that gives me a bit of a back ache.
Besides, the timbre of the cello makes me think it is to strings what the trombone is to wind.  I played the guitar a bit in my youth (classical/spanich/flamenco) but I doubt any of that will carry into the cello.

I plan on looking on Craigslist for my first cello, and it will be a cheapie or a fixer, just like my first trombone when I decided to relearn it.
I think I have some weed-eater string around here somewhere too.  ;-)

For duet seekers...

In my pursuit of method books built of student-teacher duets I came across this bassoon method...

Nouvelle Méthode de Basson by Etienne Otzi

the useful duets begin around pg 41.

Some will be over-technical but many will be suitable for trombone playing.

I have these counterparts. They are awesome, although they are not a really beginner resource. They are meant to make things interesting for the teacher of a student using Rochut.

That said, my friends and I have a hoot playing them. Rochut and a good time! Who knew?
