Film Friday – Trombones of all Sizes!
I love this because it shows off the trombone (an instrument that fascinates young learners) and also demonstrates how instruments can come in different sizes. My kiddos are always fascinated by the trombone and the video is a fantastic example of how the slide works on a trombone. If you have an actual trombone or a slide whistle to show off in class, you could demonstrate that when the slide goes out the sound changes. If you don’t have your own sliding instrument, you could take a moment during the video to show that when the slide goes out the sound changes and when the slide goes back in the sound changes again.
What else could you use this for? Showing how an ensemble works? Solo vs ensemble? Accompaniment? Key Changes? Melody? Lots of ways to make this fun video educational!
