Class Experience

First, students will gain technical prowess on their instrument, focusing on concepts like air usage, embouchure, articulation, and slide positioning. Beyond this, they will further their musicianship by improving their sight-reading, listening, and analytical skills. Perhaps most importantly, this course provides instruction in how to practice correctly--a skill that students need the most in order to improve!
I've been playing the trombone for 20 years, and I have a degree in music performance. I've taught music for about ten of those years, and I currently enjoy teaching in person at two schools!
In order to grow as musicians, it's vital that students practice at least three times a week, if not every day. A weekly lesson usually ends in assigning a short list of tasks for the week. Those tasks usually include:

-practicing scales
-practicing material from a method book
-technical exercises
-listening assignments

In all, the assignment list should take about thirty minutes on its own (but more practice is always encouraged!).
- a functioning trombone or euphonium and a mouthpiece - any music being worked on (band method book, any concert music, any PDF sheet music that I give out) - (optional) a music stand and printing out sheet music PDFs are helpful!
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students perform their prepared material in their lesson each week. In addition, making a recording while practicing to bring to a lesson is highly encouraged.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
