Generally, vibrato is most appropriate for the instruments in the wind band except for Clarinet, and French Horn. It can be appropriate for a jazz clarinetist however.
Many Trumpet and Trombone players use hand vibrato. There are many arguments for and against this use of vibrato versus lip, diaphragm or jaw vibrato but the important thing is that the pitch NOT vary too much.
Speak to your private teacher and begin to experiment with the use of vibrato in your music rehearsal. Vibrato can add a level of maturity to your sound and emotion to the music.
