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.
Our teachers create a customized lesson plan for every student. Topics covered during Musika's trombone lessons may include, but are not limited to: correct embouchure formation, how to shape your lips and buzz, proper breathing and posture, how to develop a solid tone, how to hold, assemble, and clean the instrument properly, learning the seven different slide positions, and most importantly, how to have fun playing the trombone!
No matter your age or skill level, adult trombone lessons are a great way to get into music! Our teacher work with adult students to customize a lesson plan that will put you on the fast road to learning (or continuing to learn) your instrument! Our in home lessons are a great choice for adult students as you can work in the comfort of your own home and learn your instrument without having to travel to another location during your busy day.
Children can start trombone lessons in the 3rd grade, or around age 8. The must have enough lung capacity to produce a good tone, and have long enough arms to reach the furthest slide positions. Trombone lessons offer students a real advantage in school music programs, and should be thought of as a requirement unless they get enough individual attention from their band director who is also familiar with brass instruments.
