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.

Dammit Dean, ya beat me to Susan. Grin

I have to agree with Dean, I studied with her too at the same time and the woman was the size of a Barbie Doll, was constantly eating rice cakes and could peel plaster off the wall when she played. Good!

Went to a clinic last year in which Jan Kagarice gave a talk about her problem with Facial Distonia. What a great Bass Bone player. Also Amy Morrow?  I really do not see gender as an issue for any musical instrument. I know lots of  female tubists and bonists . Way cool

I work with Jen Krupa occasionally.  She's a great musician/trombonist.  Of all my trombone students at my college teaching gig, the females are more plentiful and consistently better than the guys.  

And, you should all be checking out Melba Liston.  Slide has told me numerous times how amazing she was as a composer/musician/trombonist.  She was the musical director for Dizzy's big band in the 50's.  I believe that band also included Lee Morgan, Slide, Paul West, et al...  

Personally, I think all of the testerone running around our male bodies makes it difficult to focus and/or mature.  That is a self critique also.  I've already had "the talk" with my daughter, during which I assured her that all men are animals.  "You want to find the ones who've developed their higher brain functions."  I think she gets it.  I have a few more years to keep reinforcing the message.

hey so can anyone name any good women trombone players? or is it just a lost cause?



It is obvious that some of our members need training not only on the trombone but also in how to be sensitive, thoughtful and aware people.

Susan K. Smith (2nd in Nashville) is an outstanding player!

If you read Song and Wind you will realize that ones sex has a small part of playing the trombone.  The flute uses more air than a trombone!

Susan K. Smith ALL the way.  Austin Peay State is just a short drive from Fort Campbell.  Like a BAFOON I waited until right before I deployed (this time around) to start taking lessons from her (even then PLDC and Air Assault school limited my playing greatly).  I can't tell you how much I regret not meeting her earlier (I wasted two years between deployments not practicing much and just thinking if I wished hard enough, I'd get better).  In a few short lessons she SAVED my playing.   Kindest pro I know.  Small woman with a GI-NORMOUS sound.  I joke to my pals that her Shires (I think)/Bach/Mutt of a trombone is bigger than she is! lol.  If I decide not to return to Indiana when I get out of the service there will be no question: Austin Peay/ Susan Smith.

Gender Shmender.....

I spent the first half of my career  with the lovely and talented Vivian Lee as my second trombonist in the Montreal Symphony.  She was great!

Nowadays, I toil away with the equally lovely and talented Becky Cherian here in the Pittsburgh Symphony......Fantastic!

I simply can't imagine a world without a female trombonist sitting next to me.

You go girls!

I did an interview with my friend Karna Millen for the Shires website:

Several very fine female players have gone to school in Boston, but Karna was the first to play for the BSO.

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.

Sadly Maisie Ringham Wiggins passed away last weekend aged 92. She was still playing the trombone regularly and will be greatly missed, mourned across the world by family, friends, and students.

I don't think Carol Jarvis was ever mentioned on this thread.

Also, here's a video of another great female trombone and euphonium soloist: Danielle Elsinghorst

I have already seen my nominee for "Female Trombonist Extraordinaire" listed earlier in this thread but I have a story to relate about her amazing talent.  When I retired from my symphony bass trombone job, I began a second career as a recording engineer.  It was a field that I always was interested in and found it equally as enjoyable as my career as a trombonist.  My policy regarding time limits on recording sessions was, I believe, unique.  I agreed to record the client for as long as they wished to perform. It was a fixed fee regardless of the time involved.  Normally, I was asked to record no more than a couple of hours --- what most of us consider to be a damned good workout. Well --- this particular lady trombonist tripled that figure for a total of six hours of recording time.  I must say that she sounded as good at the beginning as she did at the end despite the fact that it was a very demanding repertoire.  Being a trombonist myself, I couldn't believe the incredible endurance and consistent quality throughout that session.  She went on to play in the San Diego Symphony.  Anyone guess who this "Iron Lady" was ?  It was Heather Buckman.  I also learned from this thread that she has become a conductor.  All I can say is that the trombone section in HER orchestra had better show some respect !   Cheers to all !!

Never look at the conductor. You just encourage them.

Have you noticed, some folk never stick around to help tidy up after practice?
