Does anyone have any tips or tricks that could help me, I already have a few ideas on what to do, I just want to hear some other opinions.
And that is probably why.
Just saying that would be pretty epic for any corps reading this
Going to start a podcast where me and my buddy go deep in the weeds on some trombone nerdiness (gear, litature, recordings, players). Let me know if you would be interested or have any ideas for good topics more info coming soon.
our beloved warrior trombone man is here to save the day!
I’m not personally a trombone player, just an admirer. I recently asked myself, “what the heck is a valve trombone’s purpose?” Like the closest thing I got was that it can be used as a transition instrument for people who play with valves. But are there any specific pieces for valve trombone? Do they sound different? And the most important question, Why?
Throughout my time as a trombonist I realized I only listen to a handful of players. I really feel the need to expand my knowledge in this aspect.
My 3(in no particular order):
Joseph Alessi(NYPhil) James Markey(BSO) Phillip Freeman(HSO)
All of my picks are Classical trombonists but Jazz trombonists are also welcome.
To be honest, it's really aweful. One moment it's in tune , the next it's not. 💀😓
Hello brass players. I'm writing a piece for low brass ensemble. (Trombones, tubas, euphonium.) I currently don't have orchestra player friends. I've read of trombone writing where going above G4 is a little iffy. I was hoping to have music up to F5, which is what most sources say tenor trombone can go up to. Any recommendation on what I can do with the upper register? The group asking for the music has expert players. I love brass sound. One of my favorites!
for reference i bought and started learning using a 100$ Chinese trumpet kit a year ago. i am getting good (if i can say so myself). just this morning was the heavy cumbersome trash day in my city and i found a Trombone in OK condition without the mouthpiece. i suppose it was a school trombone because it has many many dings in the bell caused my a mute.
i dont know anything about trombone, can someone please help me identified the range or what am i supposed to buy as a mouthpiece for this? i snapped a picture, but it wont show much.
stamped on it:
So i just bought a mouthpiece and didnt realize it was for alto trombone so since my trombone is a tenor, will it not sound good? Or is that just for how it fits?
So as the title says, I've acquired a trombone and it's the wackiest instrument I've played(could possibly be due to the decent amount if damage and tarnish).
As someone whom plays a myriad of other instruments none of which are brass or of the such. This is my first experience with a brass instrument.
So I ask, what are some tips to help me get started.
Currently I can doot and I'm finding it exceptionally difficult to find and hold notes in different octaves.
I've had this song in my head for WEEKS and it's driving me crazy. I can't really time it, but it's got some groovy soul vibes to it when the singer kicks in. It might be insanely famous, or I might have just heard it in an obscur tv show, can't really tell unfortunately.
It's starts with at least a couple trumpets (or trombones - or saxes, I'm bad at instruments). Some say an online sequencer is worth a thousand words so here it is, the intro goes something like this: https://onlinesequencer.net/1492753
Hope you can help, if not, thanks for trying anyway :)
I’m sure similar questions have been asked before and obviously I think Pet Sounds is perfect as is but just as a fun exercise I thought it could be interesting to try and place Trombone Dixie and/or Good Vibrations into the running order. Where do you think you’d place the songs?
I am a growing high school player and I’m looking for the best value f-attachment trombone. I would like good quality no chinese nonsense. Willing to pay $0-$1500. Prefer open-wrap if possible. Thanks.
I currently play guitar, piano , violin and played clarinet as a kid. My wife really likes brass instruments so was thinking of picking one up. I love collecting instruments, never know when it could come in handy for recording or jamming. Is one more sought after for jamming or studio work?
