A trombone for a beginner student does not have to be overly expensive. Most student level trombones can be purchased through a music store or musical instrument catalog for a reasonable price. There is also the option to rent the instrument, if you choose this option most instruments will be in good condition, but it is important to make sure the instrument can be taken apart and put back together easily, and that there are no dents. Your Musika teacher will be able to guide you in all aspects of acquiring your instrument.

It is very important for trombone students to have a basic grasp of music theory from the very beginning of learning the instrument. Students will learn the different slide positions, while training themselves how to play different notes. The teacher will help develop a correct embouchure, posture, and breathing technique, and also teach the student how to assemble, clean, and care for their trombone._x000D_
Adult trombone students may wish to study classical, jazz, blues, or even trombone versions of their favorite pop songs. What matters most is that the student is serious and dedicated to practicing every day! A teacher will create a custom lesson plan for an adult student that focuses on fundamentals, while keeping the lessons fun and informative.
We recommended starting trombone lessons around age 8, when the student is old enough to hold the instrument comfortably, their arms are long enough to play with the slide fully extended, and their breath support is strong enough to produce a decent tone. Trombone lessons will give students an advantage over students in their band who do not take lessons, and are highly recommended if the schools band directors experience with brass is limited.
