If you are asking  such a question, then you, yourself, are already a lost cause.

you have personally offended me! I feel bad for you! I hope if you ever meet Megumi Kanda or any of those other women trombonists out there who are often making more money than other trombone playing aspiring men you say sorry! Thank you dewitt for your sweet comment. If you ever need any advice dear, please email me. I will not let this hamper my aspirations. Amazed anywho, man, i feel like i rant rant for ever on this, grr...AUDREY MORRISION! gr! teaches at wheaton, be sure never to go there! ahh! grr! eekk! BOO! you are being ver unfair to your self dear, how old are u? im not some crazy feminist chick, its just offensive. if this was the same for like, oh i dunno men and flute, well id be just as upset. any gener can play any instrument and be darn good at it! ive actually met professional players who have said to me and I will have them quote it to you if needed, about how sometimes they enjoy listening to women play better than men beacuse of their artistry and passion for performing. not saying that men are not god at being sensitive or that woman are always sensitive, but im just showing you that sometimes women can be BETTER than men! wow, you've got me going. im going to shut up now, i hope thisdoesnt tick alot of people off. trombone rules, yay! um.....

There are plenty of good female trombonists - but I'm glad you asked the question because we should start a dialog of some of the "girl greats" that play the trombone.

Check out Melba Liston. Very talented trombonist/musician.

Ava Ordman.  The only trombone soloist who has been able to bring tears to my eyes with a classical solo.  Ava played "Kol Nidrei" at one of the Bloomington Brassfests on a tribute concert to Phil Farkas. One of the most moving performances I've heard.

I'll second Melba Liston. Great arranger as well, and she can sing. I heard her on a Dizzy Gillispie Birks' Works CD reissue. She played her own arrangement of My Reverie, I loved it. She is not well known, and it's a shame because she really had the chops. There is a lot of really interesting information on the web about her.

And, as far as "classical" trombonists are concerned, you have to mention Abbie Conant prominently

Jan Kagarice.  I heard her play a bass trombone solo at Central Michigan University in early 2003 and was bowled over by her musicianship, her technique and her big, gorgeous sound.  The University of North Texas is very fortunate to have her on the faculty.

Male or female makes no difference when it comes to great musicianship.  Only pig-headed chauvanists place some kind of perceived value on self-created stigma.

Yeah, I've heard she is really really good

Rumor has it she is a nice person, and pretty attractive too.

Is this helping? We'd love to have you stay active in this topic you started.

Are you a women trombonist, by chance?

an enthusiastic second for Ava Ordman.  When I was a Senior in high school and playing in the Grand Rapids YSO, she was unflinchingly honest about my sound and how to improve it.

I understand that the principal at the Milwaukee SO is quite good (don't remember her name, tho)
