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.
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!
No matter your age or skill level, adult trombone lessons are a great way to get into music! Our teacher work with adult students to customize a lesson plan that will put you on the fast road to learning (or continuing to learn) your instrument! Our in home lessons are a great choice for adult students as you can work in the comfort of your own home and learn your instrument without having to travel to another location during your busy day.
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.
