As a member of the UTM Bones, our shared goal is to cultivate and nurture our love for music and express that through the trombone. Whether you desire to a career in education, performance, or simply want to have music be a part of your life, it is my goal to help you along the path. The aim of trombone study at UT Martin is to present you with the knowledge, skills, and opportunities to develop your gifts and mold you into an independent, proficient, comprehensive musician.


A typical week in the UTM Bones consists of one-on-one instruction in private lessons, ensemble work in Trombone Choir, Trombone Quartet, or Brass Quintet, and collaboration with studio members and brass students in Trombone Studio Class or Brass Class.


As you explore our site, I encourage you to come to campus and see what the UTM Bones has to offer! To get the latest information about the trombone studio, like us on Facebook and Instagram, just search for UTM Bones!


If you or your parents have questions, please do not hesitate to email me! I look forward to hearing from you soon!



Unless otherwise noted, all performances are in the Blankenship Recital Hall, located on the first floor of the Fine Arts Building.
