Deb Taylor and Heather Buchman were the principals in SD Sym I mentioned. How is Debra doing, I had heard she had health problems. I hope not, great player and person.

The word around San Diego is that Heather Buchman no longer plays but is becoming a conductor. Anyone have an update? I think she was studying in Michigan.

Dr. Jeannie Lee, currently Professor of Trombone at Morehead State University, Morehead KY.  She was my lesson provider when we were in Alaska.  At that time she was principal trombonist with the Anchorage Symphony.  She is as good a trombonist as I ever heard.  She plays a great big Edwards, and sounds a lot like Joe Alessi.  And she is a really good, patient teacher. I had the privilege of studying with her for about 9 months.  Good!


I'm studying with her now in Morehead-She's great! Clever

Mrs. Woolworth has been playing semi-pro for 25 years.  She's very good.  (*puts on sexist hat*) Easy on the eyes, too!

And what about our own member Kate. I bet she's sounding pretty good these days after all that specialised teaching on bass she is getting in Sydney.

Can't see any mention of Maisie Ringham Principal Trombone with the Halle Orchestra here in the UK post WWII. She was also a top class Conductor in the Brass Band World in the UK.

I'd like to add my own personal favorite, Maureen Horgan.  Maureen used to be principal of the Nashua (NH) Symphony Orchestra, and was a well-respected teacher in the Boston area.

...and my teacher. She lives just round the corner from me and is still going strong at over 80 years of age. Still playing, conducting and long may she continue.

There are a few very interesting articles online about Maisie:

Sheila Tracey talks to Maisie Ringham;
Maisie Ringham: The Early Years by Karl Wiggins, her son;

Thanks for the input Ed.
I knew Maisie vaguely as a boy. Her husband Ray played trombone in the Sheffield Citadel SA Band in the late '40s-early '50s sitting next to my father Bram Stunell and, although her career meant that she travelled around a lot, she made some appearances in Sheffield. As a small boy it is without a doubt that something rubbed off and, what with my father's influence and tuition, and contact with a player of her stature, I started to play the trombone. I wasn't big enough, so my father had a G trombone handle fitted onto an old pea-shooter tenor trombone by the local brass repairer, the recently deceased Wilf Heaton. That was 55 years ago and I'm still playing and still learning, although the pea-shooter is long gone!

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!
oh man, i took lessons from megumi in high school.  she is a freaking BADASS musician.  hahaha.  you wouldn't think that such a tiny lady could have such an enormous sound.  

also, i would really like to bring to the attention of those who don't know:
sliding hammers.  two amazing swedish jazz trombonists.  they're sisters.  they're incredible.  really big on j&k, really wonderful melodic players from the bop tradition.  one of them sings beautifully too.  and they're gorgeous, to boot!

Susan Smith is great!  I studied with her about 21 years ago... WOW... I'm getting old.  I wish that I could play in a group with her now.  She could get the most air into her lungs than anyone else I've ever seen.  What a huge sound.

Lisa Albrecht was in the San Antonio Symphony when I moved there... she's another great player.

Lee Hill Kavanaugh is a good bass trombonist (previously with the big band Diva).

Jan Kagarice

I've played with some great military trombonists that were female... I can't remember their names right now.

My wife plays trombone, her three sisters play trombone, and two of her nieces also play trombone.  We have our own trombone choir.

Ed... talking of Maisie (who had a big influence on my playing and is a great family friend) I read those links and was interested to read something about the first good trombone she had she said

"In those days, Salvation Army Officers were paid what the local Corps could afford and my parents didn't get a big salary, but they saved and saved and sacrificed quite a lot to buy me my first trombone which cost £15. It was a Triumphonic Soloist, a Salvation Army make, and it was a very good trombone."

That trombone was my very first trombone, I learned to play on it and was still playing on it when I was 16. I still have it - not exactly very playable - and how small it is. I intend to talk to Michael Rath about it one day and get him to make some new inners for the slide - it will be playable then.  I saw Maisie a couple of months ago at Staines Salvation Army along with Don Lusher who was the guest soloist, I really should get it sorted and let Maisie have a blow on it - I dont reckon she would think it was such a good trombone after all, especially after her 88!!

Kindest regards... Doug

I saw Lea Nielsen's name pop up her, nice. There's a coupla other female trombone players of merit over here: Norwegian Annette Huseby plays bass bone with the Danish Radio Big Band, was on leave for a year with the Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra and is now back in the big band. Also subs with Niels Jørgen Steen's Monday Night Big Band. Of jazz players we have a few: Lis Wessberg who has played with Jan Kaspersen's SOB (alongside me) for many years, and here's a newbie: Sara Madsen from the Rhythmic Conservatory of music. Recently played a project with George Russell, no less, in Odense and won acclaim for her solo-endavours. Has subbed recently with the NJS MNBB, reads well and plays nice solos. Promising.
