The new book by Steve Wiest:
Leadology (Vol 1)
(A Comprehensive Methodology for Lead Trombone
in the Modern Large Jazz Ensemble
and Pop/Rock/Funk Horn Bands)

Check out the Leadology Insta! It's a virtual treasure-trove of my recordings (short, bite-sized-easy to digest) as well as cool Leadology tidbits and flub-dubs!

Howdy folks! I am SUPER excited to tell you about the
new series of books that I am currently writing. Leadology also has a companion website that I hope to turn into a trombone community at
You can check out some sneak-peeks there as well!

As the subtitle describes, this will be a methodology for lead trombone playing. As such, it will contain warmups and etudes geared towards developing a more efficient air approach to your playing and therefore a more relaxed and robust upper register. SUCH A DEAL!

I will also be composing and recording five new trombone band charts and will include analyzed lead parts for each as well as examples and annotations from the Vinyl Hampdin library. There will also be sections on style, listening, gear, and improvisation. This will be the TOTAL package!

Watch right here and on
or my Face Book Profile for more updates as they come in! You can also join the Leadology mailing list on the website as well.
