Welcome to the homepage for the Trombone Studio at the University of Tennessee at Martin, also known as the UTM Bones!


The spring semester is now under way at UTM. As the winter weather fades into spring, our attention turns to recruiting the next great class of trombonists while at the same time preparing to say goodbye to those who have helped our program grow and flourish over the past four years. Great things are happening here in Martin, and we hope that you will consider becoming a part of our growing family!

We have numerous events this spring which will provide opportunities to visit our newly-renovated Fine Arts Building including the UTM Honor Band, Junior/Senior Day, and the Honors Chamber Ensembles Festival.

The UTM Bones will be presenting our spring Trombone Night in addition to performances at several local schools and churches in and around the Martin area! We hope that you will be able to see the studio in action at one of these upcoming performances!

Feel free to explore the website and its links, visit us on campus for a concert and remember to follow us on Facebook (By clicking the link on the right) to learn more about what we're doing next!
