The Complete Trombonist Workshop

June 26 - July 2, 2016

Grade 9 through adult

Trombonists are encouraged to consider attending The Complete Trombonist: A Workshop with U of I jazz faculty member Jim Pugh.

Registration is now open at the link above! We created “The Complete Trombonist Workshop” to provide you with useful tools and information to apply in many areas of trombone performance.  Some of these tools and techniques overlap across many, and sometimes, all settings and styles while others are very specifically tied to a particular area. In that spirit, this year’s Workshop will explore trombone fundamentals; orchestral, solo and big band playing; improvisation; traditional styles; the business of music (how to get your career started or keep a career moving forward; how to use social media to your advantage; basic professional advice, etc.) plus as much other information as we can fit in.

Students must have at least completed freshman year of high school. Youth will stay in the dorm with other students at ISYM and be supervised by our counselors. They will have the ISYM experience with other campers, including attending evening activities. Adults taking the workshop will stay in a separate building.
