Beginning-level trombones, known also as student models, are relatively cheap and available through many music shops or instrument catalogs. Some music shops can also provide trombone rentals. Something to look for with a used trombone is to be sure that the instrument can be taken apart and put together easily and is relatively free of dents. Your teacher can also help with the selection of an instrument and all the accessories required to keep it in great condition.

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 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.
