On April 16, we’ll launch International Trombone Week with an online gathering led by the incomparable Alex Iles!

Alex will share his warm-up routine and discuss trombone fundamentals. Plan to shake the universe with a resonant B-flat we create together all over the world! Participants will receive a copy of Alex’s warm-up during the session.

The online session is free, and open to trombone players of all ages and abilities who are interested in learning. The only thing you need to do is register here to receive a direct link to the Zoom session.
