Playing an instrument for the first time can be a bit intimidating for many people. With the trombone the task seems even more daunting. "What?!!! You actually want me to buzz (vibrate) my lips to produce sound while blowing through a long twisted tube that has one part that moves back and forth lacking any clear markings, to make music?" At least with the trumpet or clarinet you have specific fingerings or valve combinations.
