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.
Trombone students will learn the notes of the trombone, how to hit the correct slide positions, and how to shape their embouchure. The trombone is a large brass instrument, and requires quite a bit of air support, so learning how to breathe properly is key. Most students will work on music excerpts from their school band, as well as solo repertoire, 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.
We recommended starting trombone lessons around age 8, when the student is old enough to hold the instrument comfortably, their arms are long enough to play with the slide fully extended, and their breath support is strong enough to produce a decent tone. Trombone lessons will give students an advantage over students in their band who do not take lessons, and are highly recommended if the schools band directors experience with brass is limited.
