Re: Ratio of trumpets to trombones (and baritones) in a

Amateur wind/concert bands are quite common here. Most bands strive to have 6-8 trumpets, 4-5 trombones, 2-3 basses (2Bb and 1Eb), 2-3 Euphonia, 4-5 horns, 4 clarinets per section +2 solo and 1 Eb, 2 bass clarinets, 2-3 flutes + 1 piccolo, 2 bassoons, 2 oboes + 1 English horn, 2 alto saxes, 2 tenor ...

Re: New guy

Why I switched from trumpet to trombone? When I moved to live together with my girlfriend, I joined her wind orchestra. They had like 8 trumpets and 1 trombone, and also another group I was in was looking for a trombone player. So... I borrowed a trombone, had a few lessons, tried it, and liked it!

Re: New guy

I agree with Doug!

After 15 years on trumpet, I made the switch to trombone (all on amateur level). The easiest mistake you can make is trying to blow the trombone completely full as you would on trumpet. It may help in sound in the beginning, but it ends in very inefficient playing.
