About This Course
Who this course is for:
- This course is designed for complete beginners. You don’t need any prior experience with the trombone or music to get started
- This course is not for students who already know several scales and songs on the trombone
What you’ll learn:
- Play the trombone in a lead role (melody)
- Play the trombone in a supportive role (accompaniment)
- Improvise (solo) over a basic form
- You will need a trombone to play
This is the perfect place to start for beginner trombone players! Take all the guesswork out of how and what to practice. This program comes with specially designed practice videos for each lesson.
You will learn everything you need to know about the trombone, from how to put it together and make your first sound, to how to play the trombone in a band! This course also focuses on how to express yourself through music by teaching beginner improvisation or soloing. The goal of the course is for you to fully express who you are through the instrument.
I designed this program to help you begin your musical journey on the trombone in the most efficient and fun way. This program is suitable for anyone who has a desire to play and has a working trombone. There are over 2.5 hours of video lessons and practice videos.
The layout of the course uses a simple format:
- 1 lesson video that explains a new concept/technique
- 1 practice video that has voice overs and graphics to help you play along with the teacher on the screen in real time.
There are twelve sets of lessons and practice videos that help you learn melody, rhythm, harmony, and improvising. This program also contains a Jam Room with a virtual band that you can play along with at different speeds. As an added bonus there are also five music theory made easy animated videos that explain the basic building blocks of music.
At the end of this course, you will have the confidence to play the trombone both on your own and with others in different musical situations.
Christian Overton – Trombone instructor:
If you ask jazz trombonist Christian Overton when his musical destiny unfolded, you’ll get a refreshingly simple story. Don’t wait for swooning tales about obscure jazz records with intricate trombone solos and performances that set him on the unchangeable path to becoming a musician. All that inspiration actually followed after an older brother introduced the trombone to a young Christian one day in the family room.
Christian accepted a scholarship for jazz performance at Humber College in Toronto where he excelled both in the classroom and on the college performance circuit. He studied with some of the nation’s top jazz musicians including Pat LaBarbera, John Macleod, and Alistair Kay. Christian expanded his instrumental skills into bass trombone doubling and his musical proficiency as a contemporary jazz arranger/composer for combo and big band. On the stage, his dynamic performance abilities were obvious, playing a variety of styles from jazz to Latin to R&B. Christian was also featured on seven college-produced records as a member of the prestigious Humber Studio Jazz ensemble. Now living in Toronto, Christian’s career is gaining such momentum that it’s hard to keep up! He performs in a variety of ensembles regularly including the nine-piece funk band King Sunshine, The Toronto Jazz Orchestra, and most recently, The Art of Jazz Orchestra in addition to various other pit orchestras and jobbing bands. Christian is also the featured composer and musical director for The Composers Collective Big Band, a seventeen-piece ensemble performing high-energy, contemporary works that smash the traditions of the Toronto jazz scene. Christian can also be heard on television, writing material for various productions such as School of Chef and Sun TV’s, King Kaboom.
