Wrong answer? Broken pencil? Lose a game? Project fall apart? Playing four descending musical notes can take the sting out of blunders, missteps, and failures. SadTrombone.com is a webpage with a big Play button. The button does one thing: it plays “wah wah wah waaaah.” You can’t help but crack a smile when you hear this comically sad tune. Remember the web address or bookmark it so that you can quickly access it the next time you want to have some fun with mistakes. Please note that this is a web page for adults—unfortunately there is an inappropriate link when you scroll down to near the end of the page (with this news, it would be a good time to click Sad Trombone’s Play button 🎶🎺). But adults can play the sound for kids any time they want learners to move on from failure.

  • learninginhandClick Autoplay on SadTrombone.com and add the web address that opens to your browser’s Bookmarks Bar. Then you’re always just one-click away from the fun sound effect. Autoplay doesn’t seem to work on iOS (cue the sad horns 🎶🎺).
  • learninginhandIf that unfortunate link you see when scrolling to the end of SadTrombone.com is a deal breaker, you can search Google for “sad trombone youtube”. You’ll see a 6 second video that you can play to hear the same comically sad tune.
  • learninginhandAnother web address for a quick sound effect is instantrimshot.com. Playing this after my jokes makes them even more hilarious. That site also has a link to “instant crickets.” Sometimes I need this sound effect when a joke bombs or no one raises their hand to answer a question.
  • learninginhandGot a whining kid? Play Sad Trombone and whining turns into a smile (or a glare). #iteach #teachersofinstagram #iteachtoo #parenting #growthmindset
  • learninginhandMy four year old twins and I will sit around thinking of all the sad/bad/silly things that happened that day. We click Play on SadTrombone.com after each, and it makes of laugh every time!
