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.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons at your home - a time saving solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
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!
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.
Our recommended starting age for trombone is 8. The instrument requires a good amount of lung capacity as well as physical strength with the muscles around the mouth and the ability to maneuver the instrument's sliding valve. While a student younger than 8 might be physically able to play the instrument, this is rare.
