The trombone is the only brass instrument that doesn’t use valves to change the pitch within a harmonic series of notes.
Music Exams are one of the scariest things in music. All that work leading up to that one performance with an examiner watching you......Wrong!
As a brass player one of the most common sentences I hear is “I want to learn a brass instrument but which is the easiest to play?”
