When beginning lessons, you must first decide if you are going to rent or buy your instrument. Most music stores will offer a rental program so that you will be able to pay monthly for a used instrument. While almost all will be in good quality, you will want to make sure they are dent free and the parts are easy to take apart, and reassemble. If you are looking to buy, student trombones can be purchased through music shops or instrument catalogs, and will be relatively inexpensive.
In-home trombone lessons are a convenient option for improving your musical skills. In home lessons are virtually the same in every aspect as lessons taught in a studio. You can let Musika know what days and times work best and the teacher will arrange to teach lessons in your home for the same price as in-studio lessons.
Customized lessons are taught to all students. Teachers work with the students to determine their strengths and weaknesses, and then develope the best lesson plan for their individual success! Trombone lesson will incorporate music theory, and technique such as proper lip shaping, how to produce a quality tone, and proper posture and breathing to ensure the most quality playing from the student.
We love adult students! We have adults who are complete beginners, some who haven't played their instrument in 10 years, and some who are more advanced students looking to take their skills to the next level. Our teachers have proven methods to get you the results you desire.
Trombone lessons are recommend for children 8 and older. While it is possible that a younger student could start, it is rare that they would have success. The trombone requires a large enough lunch capacity to sustain breath control, and physical strenth in the mouth and upper body in order to produce a quality tone and move the slide valve for pitch.
