Creating Opportunities for Young Trombonists

By Jeff Dunn • September 24, 2019

We founded the Tomball Trombone Institute to create an opportunity for students and for the greater trombone community. Since then, our annual program has seen increased enrollment, additional divisions added, and provided an opportunity for trombonists to teach others and perform. It is our hope that by sharing our story, we can inspire others to create opportunities in their communities to further our instrument and education.
