Impressive that he can do that without a hand in the bell. I was sure they were going to crane the camera around and reveal a foot in there.

I wonder if he tried it.


He's got a double horn there but it's not clear how he's navigating the thumb valve that switches between the two sides.  Maybe he just sets it during long rests?

The "thumb" valve is actuated at the opposite end, little toe side.

It's just amazing!! I had a little girl one time without a hand. She wanted to play trombone, and it was amazing to see the doctors or health government make a thing on her arm to make it possible for her to play. She was very motivated and in some aspects her slide technique become much better than most others.  She was more precisely or more accurate.

In the same vein, I saw a guy in a Music Store who had a hook prosthetic in place of his right hand.  He was able to play trombone just fine.
