How to do a few things with trombone

Yesterday, I had my first trombone lesson in Duxford. Within half an hour, I learned quite a few things:
  1. How to blow a raspberry.
  2. How to blow a raspberry into a mouthpiece.
  3. How to assemble the trombone.
  4. How to hold the trombone.
  5. How to blow a raspberry into a mouthpiece when it is attached to the trombone. (The sound produced, I was told, is B♭. “Your family will love it.”)
  6. How to disassemble the trombone.
Armed with all this knowledge, I practiced a little today when there was nobody around.
