again... simply stunning.  wowzers!

there are sxo many successful, blow-your-pants-off playing female 'bones out there... there is no sex divide.  just as you can have an amazing, world-renowned male clarinetist, the archaic sexist classifications in music now NEVER hold true.  i defy you to find a symphony that wouldn't let in a female trombonist if she could hold her own playing-wise.

just my $.02

I'm here.

Not orchestral, and not particularly good, but a female bone player nonetheless.

Let me add Debra Taylor, formerly of the Grant Park Symphony Orchestra (now in New Mexico somewhere I think) and Audrey Morrison, Chicago free-lancer and music educator (Wheaton, Columbia College and North Park University).

I heard that Debra Taylor is teaching here at UNM,but I haven't touched base with her yet. She's also with the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra,and several other groups around Albuquerque.

(Ah yes...that's the life of a history major and full-time working stiff! :D :D)

My decision to study with Dr. JoDee Davis is one of the best decisions I've ever made.

That being said, I must admit that I've had more females make me doubt my ability on the trombone (read: masculinity) than males.

From a male perspective, I think that the very nature of the trombone (not very effeminate if you ask me) is appealing to some females for that very reason.  They most likely want to play something different than the norm.

There is a source I wanted to pseudo-cite for our concurrence on the matter.  There's a great article: "Girls and Their Trombones," on SandyMcQueen's website that you should read: http://www.sandybarrows.net/id13.html

This is a very nice article. While there, go to Sandy's site on Sibelius. She has some nice scales and warm-ups posted there.......for free!

As far as jazz goes, just a couple that quickly come to my head are Debra Weisz (was playing with the DIVA big band when I saw them a number of years ago), Sarah Morrow (spends a lot of time in France), Melba Liston (older player, no longer with us I believe correct me if I am wrong, but very good player and writer), as well as Jen Krupa (plays in the Navy Commodores).

As far as just female low brass players goes, there's Carol Jantsch, who recently won the tuba job out in Philly. Female, and quite young, too (early 20s).

Good article, and so vary true. That's one of the things I love the most about low brass instruments is their pure raw power Evil On my euphonium I'm the loudest person in the band :D Though when I chose it the thought never even occurred to me that it was a "Boy" instrument.

Because I like to tell little stories of my own: I chose flute over many other instruments initially because I wanted to blend in. Now what draws me to the trombone is it's different, currently we only have on female low brass player. (Although last year we had two killer girl trombone players, they were spectacular one of them was the section leader) And low brass is in short supply.

I enjoyed that article though, tuba would be fun I bet. =) It's always refreshing to hear about good female low brass players. I find they are much more motivated then the males, where I find that male woodwinds (flute and clarinet in particular) are much more motivated then their female counterparts.

I just saw her at the ETW playing with the rest of the Pilly low brass.  What a fantastic player!  And it blows my mind that she's a couple years younger than me (won the job at the age of 20!!).

It's too bad that this topic heading is seemingly warranted.  I'm pretty sure that none of us could hear the lack of a "y" chromosome coming out of the bell.  In fact, would we start a topic called "gay trombonists" or "trombonists of color"...????  It's really too bad.

D Gibson, what the heck is your point?  What's too bad?  Women trombonists are a minority and it's good that this thread is generating more awareness of who some of them are.

Gunhild Carling!

By the way, anyone know any gay trombonists, or trombonists of color?  Willing to start threads?

I'm a trombonist of color!  Kind of a pinkish light flesh color!

I kinda see Dave's point, good is good, no matter what your mix of body parts, but the thread was started by a young lady. I would venture to guess that she is not exposed to many other female trombonists, especially those who play at a high level of ability. I dare say that it's never uncalled-for to recognize pioneers and standard bearers, no matter what their gender is. Still, for a young lady, it's gotta be reassuring to know that other women are playing to high standards, and that it's ok NOT to play a so-called girlie instrument.
