Featured San jose Trombone Teachers

Matthew S

Instruments:

Music, for me, is more than a profession; it is a way of life. I graduated from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music with my Bachelors in Trombone Performance. I love to introduce young students to the exciting and ever evolving world of music. Performance has enabled me to participate in unforgettable moments, like playing in Davies Symphony Hall, the Berlin Philharmoniker, and various other venues accross the world. I wish to give my students the skills needed to have these experiences for themselves.

RIC F

Instruments:

I'm a passionate professional performer and teacher with extensive real world music industry experience. Performing with various artists from all differing genres, both live performance and on records, yields results with my students. I give my students all the necessary keys needed to succeed on their instrument. Having been a major player on projects with two Grammy nominated artists (John Lee Hooker, Jr and Phil Driscoll) and having performed live with Billy Joel and Paul Simon has given me a different perspective on what is needed to be successful. I will communicate this to all my students.

More Information About Trombone Lessons

Most beginning students start with a straight trombone, which does not have extra tubing included. More advanced students may wish to go with an F-rotor trombone, which adds an extra trigger to make the trombone longer, changing the key. A student may decide to purchase a new trumpet, rent an instrument from a local shop, or try to buy a used instrument. If renting or buying used, make sure the instrument is cosmetically sound and largely free of dents, and that the valves and slide all move correctly.
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!
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.
Trombone lessons are recommended for older children, beginning around age 8. While it is possible that a younger student may be able to play, it is rare. The instrument requires a larger lung capacity, with lots of breath control. Lip and mouth strength is also needed to produce a quility tone, as well as physical strenth to move the sliding valve.
