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!

Fun and informative learning

I have found Nick Sholl's teaching and resources to be superb and would heartily recommend them to anyone serious about improving their trombone playing. Nick's teaching style is sympathetic, laser focused and progressive, whilst maintaining a healthy level of fun throughout lessons.
