    The sliding tubes are loose so they can be adjusted while playing to flatten some pitches which tend to be sharp on most trumpets. For now don't concern yourself with them, but put a left hand finger in the saddle or loop on the third valve slide to keep it from falling out.
    Your teacher will show you how to work them when he thinks you are ready.
    Enjoy!
