Revised and expanded, the second edition of The Remington Warm-Ups provides even more examples, exercises, and useful information than the first edition published in 1980, which is recognized as an essential pedagogical trombone text. This annotated collection of the famous daily routine developed by Emory Remington, The Chief, includes 64 of the studies used to train some of the world’s finest trombonists. Donald Hunsberger also includes the text of interviews he conducted with The Chief before his death in 1971. In those interviews, Remington describes his singing style, the correct way
to tongue, a concept of sound, flexibility, a legato approach, security in the high register, and relaxation.

--The New York Times
EMORY B. REMINGTON (1891–1971), was professor of trombone at the University of Rochester’s Eastman School of Music from 1922 until his death in 1971. He “is recognized as one of the most outstanding brass instrument pedagogues in the world. In almost 50 years at Eastman, he taught hundreds of students who went on to hold positions in virtually all of the country’s major symphony orchestras, as well as in college music departments and schools.”
DONALD HUNSBERGER, a former student of Emory Remington, is conductor emeritus of the Eastman Wind Ensemble, having served as its music director from 1965 to 2002. Under his leadership, the Eastman Wind Ensemble continued its development as an international performance model in the creation of numerous new works for the wind band, providing prime examples of contemporary performance techniques as demonstrated on numerous recordings and tours. Under Hunsberger’s direction the EWE performed on six tours of Japan and Taiwan between 1990 and 2000, and one throughout Japan and Southeast Asia in 1978 sponsored by the U.S. State Department and the Kambara Agency. He has been the recipient of a number of awards for research, pedagogy, and performance.
