In the educational and especially in the musical arts education field, it is common to learn by imitation. It is a primary instinct inherent in human beings and of great value, since it is vital to learn rhythms and sounds, ie, we involuntarily internalize the own prosody of the musical dialogue and favor the auditory development.

Apart from the sound imitation, there are other ways of learning that can promote cognitive development of students in music teaching. The new methodological proposal uses new technologies to promote the sound meaningful learning process in students. To do this, we start from previous knowledge, which are given by the interpreter listening experience. Those are developed thanks to the sense of sight, favoring cognitive reasoning, always guided by the teacher.

The materials used for the development of the new methodology are two Behringer microphones for measuring and one sound card Alesis io2 for data acquisition. As well as, a software to process and display the data; the pressure meter PCE-P01 / 05, which measure the intraoral pressure to establish patterns that facilitate and control the correct tension and distended lips vibration. Finally, the Audacity software, which have created sound and rhythm models to work.

The achievement of the objectives established by Royal Decree 1577/2006 of 22 December for the subject of trombone in the professional educations of music conservatories is favored with this proposal
