Our Excellent Trombone Teachers

The International School of Music is made up of highly qualified and talented performers with worldwide concert and pedagogical experience. Each member of our faculty goes through an extensive interview and audition performance before being accepted to teach. This ensures that students are getting the best of the best, establishing their skills with an instructor that they will grow and feel comfortable with. With years of teaching and playing experience in a variety of styles and genres of music, teachers tailor each lesson to the needs of the student and work with each student to help them reach their goals.

Trombone Lessons for Beginners

Beginner students work with their teachers to learn the fundamentals of music, like pitch, rhythm, intonation, and terminology. Teachers also guide students in learning how to care for their trombone, assemble the instrument, how to read notes, placement of fingers and hands, breath control, tone production, proper embouchure, and simple melodies. Beginner students will also go through technical exercises so that they get more comfortable with the instrument, and so that they can progress to play music of different styles and complexities.

Trombone Lessons for Intermediate and Advanced Students

Advanced students will study concertos and advanced solo repertoire. Because our teachers are highly skilled and subspecialty trained, they are able to match advanced students’ skills, providing comprehensive lesson plans that enhance students’ performance and sharpen instrument abilities. Whether the student is playing solo, in a school orchestra, school band, jazz band, an Audition Orchestra, a Pop Band, or just for fun at home, students will receive a thorough trombone education in an environment of excellence and enjoyment. When searching for “trombone lessons near me” you will find that you are only minutes away from music teachers in Bethesda, Potomac, Rockville, Chevy Chase, and Washington D.C.

Amazing Trombone Performance Opportunities

One of the best ways to become more comfortable with your skills and performance ability is to, well, perform! We believe that performance opportunities are a crucial part of the learning process, giving you the confidence to share your talent while also encouraging others to do the same! Recitals are included in student’s tuition, and are a magnificent way to showcase achievements and milestones in front of peers, faculty, family, friends, and either visiting artists. Our trombone students have unique performance opportunities, including Carnegie Hall, NY Honors Recital, Kennedy Center, Strathmore Center, our Passport Concert Series, as well as our Ambassador Community performances.

Trombone Certification Programs

One of the most rewarding ways to track your progress as you continue mastering elements of the trombone is taking part in our certificate programs, which allow you to keep track of your goals and share your milestones with your teacher and others. Written evaluations are a great way to chart a student’s progress, as well as contribute to a student’s long-term success and progression. Optional certificate and diploma programs are offered by ISM, both through its own program and by meeting the standards of ABRSM, ASTA, National Piano Guild, NATS, MTNA, and many other national organizations. Another option is the Musical Ladder System, which charts students’ progress through written evaluations.
