Intuitive-based foundations at the Trombone

You want to learn Trombone from a fresh perspective - a more intuitive approach?

You prefer to learn from home at your own pace?

You're hitting roadblocks and your technique needs resetting from the foundations up?

If this matches your desires then this course is for you.

'Bone Basics has been designed to teach the foundations of intuitive trombone playing in simple, logical steps. 

Expert instructor and Bass Trombonist Nick Sholl has condensed over 10 years of successful teaching experience into the most essential learning content that has given hundreds of trombonists a healthy, joyful start at the trombone. 

His tried and tested "Song & Wind" Method opens up vast possibilities for any trombonist open to the challenge: where most methods begin with the 'notes first', 'Bone Basics' instructs from an intuitive, 'ears first' concept. 

This highly personal approach connects your 'inner voice' with the Trombone: it is in this creative area that great enjoyment and musical development occurs. It sends you on a musical path where you can learn to follow your musical desires most effectively. 

In a nutshell: "if you can sing it, you can play it!" - sound good?

By following and playing along with the carefully constructed 6-week 'Trombone Transformation' Video Series and written instructions you can begin this highly satisfying musical journey and never want to turn back.

What you’ll learn:

- Play what you hear (not what you see) so you can connect to your 'inner musician'

- Learn how to connect your subconscious song database with the Trombone via 'Trigger Tunes'

- Learn how to play melodies by ear and with recordings for full musical freedom
- Breathe deeply and quietly for maximum efficiency and longer phrases

- Find an ideal posture for years of injury-free playing

- Focus on relaxation - a 'less is more' approach

Playing by Ear!

The first this I noticed about the Bone Basics Course is that students end up playing by ear without even thinking about it. Nick has created exercises which feel natural on the instrument and lay the groundwork for a much more intuitive approach to the instrument generally, whether you are playing by ear or reading the dots!

Great explanations and clear instructions!!

Nick has done a great job on this course, he has gone to great lengths in order to show very clearly and explain how to use the instrument, as a tool for making music. I am very impressed by the way he managed to get you playing very much from day one, by including "real life" examples of how and when the first tones are used, like on the Happy birthday song, or Frére Jacques song. So, you are off to a flying start and actually playing trombone from the very beginning. As a professional player, and low brass tutor, I found Nick's course a very inspirational and very educational resource, very surely if you play your first notes along with this course, you will have a great beginning! I highly recommend this course.
