If you're just beginning to learn a Brass instrument (Trumpet, Trombone, Tuba..etc) and are having problems or a general question, this is the place to post your questions.

Let's say you're having a problem such as...

On page 13 of the Greenbook, line 74. I'm having problems with the 4th measure.

or,

I'm learning the trumpet and am having trouble getting any notes to come out.

Please be sure to post what instrument you're learning.

Enjoy!

I'm hardly an expert on anything brass, but I'd suggest trying to get at least one note out (the toooo), and holding it as an excercise to build your lip (embechure). The more ou're able to get that one note, the more ready you'll be to hit other notes. It takes time, but you'll get the hang of it!

hey, instead of saying ta or to, say da or do. Just replace the t's with d's . It simulates playing into your horn. ta doesnt set your embosure, da does

yeah i used to take lessons at salisbury music, and he taught me how to do double tonguing and it was REALLY hard at first, but once u get the main "just" of it, its pretty east.

blush What is the best way to teach two new people how to play the trombone and what is the best kind of trombone to buy if you've been in band for four years now? Do you have to hold a trombone a certain kind of way to get a good sound? ]

sometimes.. playing trumpet can be a total butt!.. just keep doing it


If given the choice. Would you take the left, curvy road or the right, straight road. Not knowing what either road has down it... Me?.. I'd choose the left one, because everyone else will choose the right, easy one. Id rather be different, than like everyone else. I like adventure.

Many of our trombones leak around the water key. Might want to check that.

yeah mr. matthews is right. most of our trombones are so crappy. it is hard to find a good instrument in this school. i need to start practicing again. i know most of the positions. i just need to practice on the bass clef. it is hard for me....... clarisax=chelbi
