trombone

To expand my musical knowledge further, I decided it would be a good time to start a new instrument. Here's my thought process of why I chose trombone:

I started music on the Alto Sax. Since then, I've played Tenor, Bari and Soprano Sax. For those who don't know, saxophones aren't in an orchestra, but I have a goal to be in my school's orchestra, if not this year, next. Since saxophone is a woodwind instrument, I thought It might be nice to make a switch to brass. That leaves Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, Euphonium, and Tuba. Again, since saxophone is a treble clef instrument and I need help reading bass clef I decided to take that route. So that leaves Trombone, Euph and Tuba. (Also, my sister plays Trumpet and Horn, don't need anymore of those in our house). Tubas are too large to carry around so that was out. And in keeping with the jazz instrument theme of my household I went for trombone!
