Class Experience

The student will learn: 1) slide care and maintenance, 2) appropriate posture, hand position, and grip, 3) developing a flexible wrist motion and fluid arm movements, 4) foundational techniques to consistently put the slide in the same spot for the notes, 5) exercises to develop fluid, flexible slide technique, 6) melodies useful for practicing the techniques.  
The student is expected to practice 30 minutes per day, 5 days per week for the duration of the course.  
Additionally, the student will receive assignments to watch Youtube videos of professional trombone players to study and assess those the performers' slide technique.  
1. A trombone with a slide that is in good working order and a clean mouthpiece (The student will be asked to describe the slide condition prior to the first day of class.) 2. Slide lubrication (slide oil or slide cream with water spray bottle) 3. Clean rag for use in cleaning the slide (can be an old washcloth, cotton sock, or piece of a t-shirt) 4. A washcloth (specifically dedicated to catching moisture being drained from the "spit valve") 5. An eager willingness to learn
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Student progress is determined on participation in class and the noticeable development of the skills introduced in the class via individual performance in a call and response teaching strategy.  Students who make sufficient progress will be encouraged to enroll in the next course or private lessons.  Students who need more time to develop the skills will be asked to repeat the course or may opt to take private lessons.  
3 hours per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
