The 7th Annual Eastman Summer Trombone Institute Featuring Michael Davis
The Eastman Summer Trombone Institute is an intensive, informative and supportive environment for trombonists who wish to challenge themselves as they grow their musical skills and familiarize themselves with the many facets of performing and teaching. This five-day institute will include daily master classes, trombone trio or quartet coachings, trombone choir rehearsals, and special topic seminars such as solo playing, improvisation, orchestral section playing, recital/audition preparation, and doubling. Each student will receive one private lesson with a faculty member during the course of the week as well. The institute is hosted by Mark Kellogg, Associate Professor of Trombone, Euphonium, and Chamber Music at the Eastman School of Music and Principal Trombone of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra. He is joined by Jim Martin, former member of the Buddy Rich Band and the Maggio Musicale, faculty member at Webster University and SIU/Edwardsville; Catie Hickey, member of the Foothills Brass (Calgary, Canada) and faculty member at SIU/Carbondale; Michael Davis, top-call New York trombonist, composer, and arranger and member of the Rolling Stones horn section; John Marcellus, Professor of Trombone at the Eastman School of Music; Christopher Azzara, Professor of Music Education at the Eastman School of Music; and Katie Fittipaldi, certified Alexander Technique instructor.
