...I am more into growing musically on the instrument. 

Any great song.

It needn't be one of them fancy "solo for trombone and piano" pieces all the kids are lining up to hear.

How about Brahms?
Ellington?
Wilder?
Fauré?
Grieg?
Rodgers/Hart?
Joni Mitchell?

Its almost like your asking a parent who their favorite child is... my favorite pieces are the David Concertino, Jacob Concerto, Ropartz in Eb Minor, Rimsky-Korsakov, then Bluebells. And these are all playable by highschoolers, no bourgeois or anything for me until freshman year in college. not really, i goof around on it like once a month.

Oh it is when you do it at written tempo. Anyone can play it at dotted half note equal to 72. Its getting it at 90-120.

Your starting to remind me of myself last year. It's actually kind of frightening. Some advice is, make sure you play in as many ensembles as possible so you can have at least 3 hours in a day for trombone and your chops will get so good. Don't settle for less than perfect, try and try and try until you get whatever portion of a song correct. Make sure that you know how to take criticism well, because I didn't and got really emotional after a lesson with Ken Thompkins, but sometimes its good to have that. Know your place and remember that you are different than the kid sitting next to you blowing french fry chunks out of his trombone, you actually care.

Hahha, yea thanks!

If there is free time during the summer, that free time becomes practice time

I'm auditioning for a youth symphony this July 16th so if I make it, then I will have another performance experience!

:)

My teacher is actually wanting me to play the Bourgeois mvts 2+3 this coming year for the concerto competition! (will defnitely be practicing this MAJORLY

It's so difficult saying which solo I like better then another!
But if I were to go in order by which one has the greatest "Emotional Impact" on me. Clever

1. Ropartz Piece for trombone and Piano
2. De Meij T-Bone Concerto
3. Sonata - Sulek "Vox Gabrieli"
4. Beau Soir Debussy
5. Grondahl Trombone Concerto

There are so many other great pieces though...  The Second Movement of the David Concertino goes straight through me as well! :cry:

I dug up another favorite a few nights ago...

"The Bride of the Waves" by Clarke.

I know it's not intended to be a trombone piece, but it's always been a favorite solo piece of mine.

If you're happy for bass trombone solos also;
Allegro Et Finale - Bozza (good for tenor also)
Concerto in One Movement - Lebedev
Sonata for Bass Trombone - McCarty
Father Neptune - Roy Newsome
Trilogy For Bass Trombone - Dossett

The Tenor Piece that I know that are very good are;
Concert for Trombone - Grondahl
Concerto Borealis - Soreen Hyldgaard
Romance - Weber
Morceau Symphonique - Guilmand
