The infamous trombone, known for its long slide to change pitch is a marching band favorite. Not to mention many early television and film studios used the effects of the trombone’s slide to create sounds to add context to either the comedy sketches or depth to solemn moments. The trombone is still a popular brass instrument to play today and can be found featured in marching bands and big band jazz ensembles.
Our brass instructors will focus on providing a great understanding of rhythm and pitch. Brass instruments in particular require development of great pitch as the pitches come largely from your embouchure or the way your lips, mouth and tongue make contact with the mouth piece. Since trombones use a slide, even more attention to detail on pitch is necessary.
