    I've played tenor trombone

    since I was in 5th grade, but finally got a soprano this year. So far, my tone on it is trash, but I just need to get used to the trumpet-sized mouthpiece 😂

    I Love The Trombone!

    I've played the trombone now going on 20 years. In my humble opinion, I think it's probably one of the most verastile instruments in the family. It sounds great either solo, in a band or orchestra and can stand alone by itself as a trombone choir. A trombone choir is easily...

    Me and the Trombone

    I started playing when I was 12. I chose it because it was sort of like the musical platypus, pretty weird and not closely related to another instrument. When I was little I thought they swallowed the slide, I was fascinated, I just couldnt work out how they did it. I got into...

    High School
