(Virtual) Eastman Summer Trombone Institute
August 2 - August 8
Mark Kellogg, director
Faculty: Larry Zalkind, Jim Martin, Catie Hickey, Brendan Lanighan, Chris Azzara, and Priscilla Yuen
The Eastman Summer Trombone Institute is an intensive, informative and supportive environment for trombonists who wish to challenge themselves while growing their musical skills and becoming familiar with the many facets of performing and teaching. The expertise of the faculty allows us to cover important topics during the week such as audition preparation, jazz improvisation, recording for movie and television soundtracks, orchestral playing, and doubling. The institute is designed for high school, college, and graduate-level players. Each participant will have the opportunity to play in master classes and trombone choir and have a one-hour lesson with a faculty member during the course of the week. Every student will also work on a designated solo repertoire with piano accompaniment.
