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.
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.
All lessons will incorporate the basics of music theory, correct technique, and overall musicianship. No two lessons will be the same, because no two students are the same, and our teachers work with each student to determine the best teaching method, and approach so that the student will work to their maximum potential. While teachers will teach the basics, they will also incorporate the individual goals of the student, and work to assure their success!
Adult students often choose to study jazz or blues once they have mastered the basics, as the trombone can help solidify their love for big band or latin music. The trombone is an instrument which requires dedication, and daily practice is required in order to develop a good tone and love for the instrument.
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.
