Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Section Playing Success 101


Take an in-depth look at the music from his

Requiem in D-minor


Left unfinished whilst on his death bed, this module looks at the particular musical and stylistic considerations of Mozart's requiem mass. The lectures also take an in-depth look at the skills we use every day in our job as trombone section of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, giving you an insight into how we prepare and perform this challenging work. The knowledge you gain from these videos will give you a great advantage the next time you sit in a trombone section, be it in an orchestra, a wind band or even playing chamber music.


Playalong tracks allow you to then use this knowledge as you play along with the RPO trombone section. Simply put on some headphones, decide which player you wish to replace and you will be transported to that seat.

John Williams

What does it take to get through the ultimate stamina test of a two-show film gala day? And what if we told you to approach this music like you would that of Alban Berg?

Richard Strauss

Working on two of his greatest works for orchestra, Strauss seems to request just about every colour the trombone can produce, how do you do it?

Frequently Asked Questions:


Is this the whole course?

No, we have divided the course into modules by composer – John Williams, Mozart and Richard Strauss. There is also a free introductory course which contains a video and playalong to Bruckner's Symphony No. 8.

When is the course?

Whenever you want! The course begins from the day you purchase it.

Do I have to complete the course in a week?

No, take your time! While in theory you could work through it in just a week, you have 6 months access, so what's the rush? Enjoy!

How do I receive feedback on my own playing?

Purchasing any module (other than the free introduction) allows you to receive feedback on your own playing. Simply record any of the music from the module you have purchased and follow the instructions in the course to receive personal feedback.

Video or audio recordings are accepted. Only the first five minutes of the recording will be commented on. You can receive feedback on all modules you purchase.

What are PLAYALONG tracks?

You chose one of us to replace in the section (1st trombone, 2nd trombone or Bass trombone). You can then play that part alongside the other players – for the best experience please wear headphones. There are two versions for each piece, one with a click and one without. It is like being a member of the RPO!
