For people who know how to play a trombone, does anyone know how I can improve?

For people who know how to play a trombone [well, if you play an instrument, you could still help], does anyone know how I can improve? I cant play on rhythm. I just cant stomp my foot at the beat while playing. I can only use the beat for quarter notes, though. If I play 16th notes, it messes my rhythm and it is hard. Can someone help on how to stay on time? I also cant go quickly on my slide and cant process the high notes. So, if I am looking at a high D, I get confused and think is that a C or a D?

I'm in band, currently playing trombone. The way you can improve is by praticing. Take baby steps toward what you want to accomplish. Like, for improving your posture, do it step by step. Also, you might want to put some water/slide grease on your slide if it's having a hard time moving. C is 3rd position and D is 1st. Though it does all depend on your tuning.

What I mean by its hard to move, its hard to move quickly. And I also have a hard time reaching 7th position because I have short arms. I can barely reach sixth .
