About the Trombone
Like most brass instruments the trombone is incredibly fun to play and has a very full sound. Many students find the trombone to be very rewarding and fulfilling as it is often very sought after and provides a lot of performance opportunities. Trombone is not a commonly learned instrument which is nice because unlike some instrument there is a lot less competition.
The trombone is considered a brass instrument because it produces sound through lip vibration. Brass instruments are often made of brass or other metals but it is not a requirement to be listed as part of the brass category. Some brass instruments can be made of wood.

Trombone Fun Facts
The trombone is a descendent of an earlier instrument called the sackbut.
Left handed people have a harder time playing the trombone as it is designed to be right hand dominant. If you are left handed you will have to learn to play the trombone with your right hand doing the majority of the detail work.
The noise you hear in Charlie Brown cartoons when the teacher is speaking is actually created by a trombone. Trombones can be manipulated to produce that sound by using a plunger mute in jazz which creates a sound similar to a human voice. to achieve the effect of a human voice speaking. Interestingly enough the difference between a plunger mute and an actual plunger is simply how and where they are used. Hopefully you won’t grab the wrong one on accident….ewww
The first recorded performance of a trombone was in 1468 at the wedding of the Duke of Burgundy
There are three common types of trombones the bass trombone, tenor trombone, and the alto trombone. They can also be made out of many different types of metals and materials.
