Tips and tricks to help you play better


HOW do you practice efficiently? What exactly should you be playing every day? Here is a good list of some stuff you should be hitting every day, and great ways to execute and analyze your practice session.


AIR is the gasoline for our instrument. The breath is one of the most, if not the most important thing to a brass player. Without the proper breath our sound will suffer. Here are some breathing exercises to get you started.


PERFORMANCE ANXIETY is something most of us suffer from at one point or another, whether your mouth gets dry, your heart flutters, or you just can’t focus. If you are aware of what may be causing this it is easier to overcome it.


MUSICALITY, phrasing, direction. Whatever you want to call it, this is the key to making music. Music is not just notes and rhythms, but the emotion that makes you listen more intently to hear what is next in this musical story.


BUYING a trombone can be a big investment, and you want to make sure you pick one that will fit your needs and last you for years. Here are a few tips for picking the right trombone for you.
