The trombone is a brass instrument that has a slide with which the player changes the length of the tube to vary pitches (although there are valve trombones which use three valves similar to those on trumpets). The word trombone comes from the Italian tromba, meaning trumpet, and-one, meaning large, so it literally means “large trumpet.” Trombone players, or trombonists, typically start off playing the tenor trombone (but usually people leave off the tenor part), and certain experienced players learn to play the bass trombone.
