The Low Notes

These are the 7 lowest notes on your instrument.
Starting on C and working down in semitones.

Click the yellow arrows to hear the notes and try to match them on your instrument

Relax your lips as you go down.

Trumpets: Try to remember the fingerings in order - it's a really useful pattern:


Trombones: It's a bit easier for you - just push your slide out a bit further for each note.

Use your ears!
Unless you've got very long arms, you probably won't be able to reach the last note yet.
