This handbook is designed to outline the minimum requirements of trombone study at Penn State University. This handbook will be used in conjunction with the information online for current students at the Penn State School of Music website, and the various required and suggested musical texts.

The first inclusion in this online handbook will be the General Requirements for Applied Trombone Study here at Penn State. This will be followed by the various Courses of Study for Applied Trombone Lessons in each of the degree programs offered at the School of Music. These course outlines will be general. The specifics of each individual's requirements will be outlined in a semester syllabus that will be decided upon in consultation with Professor Lusk.

The Appendix will include syllabi for Trombone Choir/Studio Class, Music 192 Section 4, Music 416, Brass Pedagogy, and Music 588, Low Brass Literature. It will also include the various forms and lists a trombone student will need throughout the semester.

Please read this handbook carefully, and feel free to ask questions if any aspect of this handbook is unclear.
