The Trombone


Aerophone | Wind | Brass

The trombone is Mr Lane’s specialist instrument and, like the trumpet, is an incredibly versatile instrument which you will find playing in almost every genre of music including classical, jazz, pop, wind ensembles, brass ensembles etc.

The trombone is unique within the brass family of instruments in that a moving slide changes the length of tubing to obtain the different notes, rather than the valve mechanism used by all the other brass instruments.

Here a some of my favourite trombone players throughout history. Search their names on Youtube and enjoy their amazing trombone playing, I hope they inspire you:
