Trombone is the flashiest instrument in the band, with its long expanding slide and bright-brass bell. It's the instrument we often picture when thinking of marching bands and parades.
The trombone has an open, resonant tone that can blend well with other instruments or carry a soulful melody. It has the broadest range of any orchestral instrument and is used in all types of music from powerful classical choruses and chorales to marches, R&B, and rock.
To make the trombone tone, the player makes a buzzing sound by blowing air through closed lips. The mouthpiece amplifies the sound and it travels through the trombone's tubing and out its bell. The trombonist moves the slide in and out to make the different notes; increasing the length the sound must travel makes the note lower.
Although many trombone players are boys, girls also often choose it. It's not a difficult instrument to play.
