Develop Your Trombone Playing

Every trombone lesson will be built around your learning level and playing level. Lessons will always be geared towards the styles and genres that you love.

This enables the teacher to tailor a learning experience that is specific to each student. Learning to play the Trombone isn’t easy and if you have a teacher that truly understands your goals it will make the learning experience a very enjoyable one.

Beginners, all the way to more experienced teachers are all more than welcome to take lessons with our experienced teachers. Everything can be taught and it all depends on your level and learning preference. Our teachers will try their best to make sure you are more than prepared when it comes to learning and performing.

Some of our teachers can even teach you how to write music or perform as part of a group or simply on your own. Check out each teacher’s profile to see what they provide for students. Our lessons are taken both in person and online. While many teachers prefer face to face lessons. Online lessons are now becoming increasingly more popular and have become a big part of learning these days, especially with the advance in internet speed.

Both young learners and adults are welcome to take lessons. While generally students of any age can learn to play the trombone, some teachers do have a preferred starting age and this can vary from teacher to teacher but generally is around ages 4-6.

We help more advanced trombone players to push on to that next level, giving them the skills required to perform, record and play with other musicians.

Lessons are always built around your age and learning level and the learning speed is totally down to you as the learner. Always remember that our teachers care about you and your progress and will always be happy to hear feedback to improve your learning experience.

Can anyone learn the trombone?

In short, yes, it’s possible for anyone to learn an instrument. For trombone specifically, you need to be willing to put in time and effort as well as taking lessons. It can take months to get the basics but if you’re willing to put in the effort early on then you will feel all the benefits later on.

You don’t need to practise for hours on end. 30 mins a day will be enough to see great results over a few months. I do think though that learning an instrument has to be something that YOU want to do. Don’t do it for anyone else.

So many people quit musical instruments within the first few months of playing, if you can get over the first few months, this is where it gets really fun and interesting and it’s also when you can start playing pieces that you both recognise and enjoy as a listener and player. It can take a while to build the correct technique but our teachers will always help you learn in the right direction and will put their ideas across in a way that’s easy to understand.

Some people try an instrument and then decide it’s not for them. I would still recommend trying, because you don’t know until you try. Regardless of whether you’re 50, 5, or 20, always try to follow your gut instinct with something like this. It can be daunting to begin with but I can guarantee after two lessons or so you’ll feel much more confident and comfortable. Regardless of your still level, our trombone teachers will make a lesson plan that works for you.

Learning online and from youtube can be an okay way to learn the basics but generally I would say these are tools that are far better used once you have an understanding of an instrument. It’s very easy to pick up bad habits when learning alone and I would generally push students away from this method of learning. You don’t need to have a musical background to learn an instrument like the trombone. Many people learn and have no musical background or even any relationship with music. Music is something that can be taught, it’s very rare for one to have a natural ability when it comes to music. So with this in mind, try not to be put off from learning an instrument you’ve always wanted to learn, just give it a try.

Our teachers will always be there to help you on your journey, anyone can learn and our teachers are always willing to teach. If you’re a beginner or an advanced player please get in touch. Our teachers will always make sure you learn the styles that you enjoy and will make sure you learn in a direction you feel comfortable with in the long run.

If you happen to be a parent looking for lessons for a family member or for a child it’s really worth thinking about whether they will be really committed to learning and whether they actually want to learn or you want them to learn. I’ve taught students before who clearly weren’t interested or who simply didn’t want to be there and in turn this means the lessons are not productive and it’s difficult for the teacher as well. My advice would be to speak to your child and find out what they want, a good sign is always if they originally mentioned learning to you.
