Trombone: audition and classical music jobsTrombonists are musicians who specialize in playing the trombone. The trombone is a very common instrument in the musical world and is frequently used in orchestras and parades, so the music job is very well-liked in these settings. A trombonist will rarely play alongside other trombonists as the instrument tends to be very pronounced and doesn’t need the additional emphasis provided by adding more instruments to the arrangement. Trombonists typically play their instrument along with other instruments though.
The primary need a trombonist has is steady work. For many trombonists, this translates to trombone jobs in education. Some trombonists who obtain masters or doctoral degrees in education are fortunate enough to become employed as assistant or full time professors of trombone. These trombonists not only teach individual lessons, but also provide guidance and conducting assistance to groups such as trombone quartets or trombone choirs. These teachers usually enjoy the highest pay rate of any trombone teachers because they have a higher education level and a dependable number of students and hours to work.
The next best option after education for a trombonist who occasionally needs a stable job is to work as an instrument developer or repairman in a music store or manufacturing company. Those who work in music shops have to be able to demonstrate trombones to prospective buyers and must understand what features should be paired with particular student needs. They have to have excellent communication and service skills and may help place orders or track inventory. Trombone repairmen in music shops have to have a basic understanding of how the trombone works in order to fix basic problems such as sticking slides or a dented bell.
The Bachelor of Music (BM) in Trombone Performance prepares students to aggressively audition for full time work in an orchestra, military band, to be involved with a professional chamber group or pursue a solo career. The BM student has always had a desire to compete and gains a sense of thrill from the prospect of auditioning. He or she wants nothing more than to sit in a professional orchestra or ensemble and is prepared to risk certain social freedoms for this cause. This kind of student develops a terrific sense of accomplishment from long hours in the practice room and looks forward to their moment on the stage. The BM candidate must be able to handle rejection frequently and with tenacious confidence. This degree candidate usually continues on to graduate school in hopes of increasing his or her chances of winning an audition for a professional ensemble.

The trombone, or large trumpet in Italian, is a lower voice in the brass wind ensemble. Unlike the trumpet that started as a simple tube and now has valves, the trombone was always operated with a slide. This allows the player to change the pitch of the instrument by changing the length of the instrument. The same thing can be accomplished with valves, but the slide allows an infinite number of degrees of change. The problem of reaching the lowest note depends on the length of your arm!
