Trombone Guide

For years I've dreamed of hosting an in person week-long intensive camp for serious high school trombonists. The function of the seminar would be to work with students through a week-long experience designed to mimic a professional's practice week. With world class faculty, a beautiful and picturesque location, and tons of time together to dig into the deepest trombone practice and training, The Trombone Guide Academy is SURELY something not to be missed.

24 High school students, 4 faculty, 4 college student staff memebers, and a week to dive into subjects like:

2023 Faculty

Trombone, Bangor Symphony
Trombone Guide Studios


Asst. Professor, Murray State University

Assoc. Professor of trombone, director of Jazz studies, Southeast Missouri State University

Freelance and Solo Bass Trombonist, New York City


Trombone Guide Academy will be hosted at the University of maine, Augusta campus.  Residence halls will be just down the road in Hollowell, Maine. Picturesque and gorgeous, and students will have an opportunity to enjoy Maine activities in June. Students will be housing in University of Maine housing (included in tuition). 


Trombone Guide Academy runs from Friday, June 23 - Friday, June 30, 2023

Activities will end at noon on Friday, June 30th, and students should plan to arrive on Friday morning of the 23rd. 

How Much:

Tuition for Trombone Guide Academy is $2,000. This includes all faculty programming, masterclasses, instruction, all costs for housing, breakfast, lunch, and Dinners. It does NOT include transport to the seminar. Scholarships are available!
