Course descriptionThe trombone is a musical instrument in the brass family. As on all brass instruments, sound is produced when the player's vibrating lips (embouchure) cause the air column inside the instrument to vibrate. Nearly all trombones have a telescoping slide mechanism that varies the length of the instrument to change the pitch.
Many modern trombone models also use a valve attachment to lower the pitch of the instrument. Variants such as the valve trombone and superbone have three valves similar to those on the trumpet.
Trombones are versatile instruments and are commonly found in jazz bands, marching bands and orchestras. They are also found in brass choirs, brass bands, military bands, swing music, salsa music, R&B music and merengue music.
Study and learn the trombone through private lessons from accomplished instructors who are experts in their craft and who will work with you to meet and exceed your goals.
