The Virtual Trombonist

The Virtual Trombonist is a place for me to share my love of music, trombone, and music technology.  Subscribe to my email list for late breaking blog posts, videos, and educational content!

I've always been a read-it-and-learn-it kind of guy. That's probably why having teachers that yell to get results has never worked for me. I'm kind of baffled that the military has been a good (great!) fit for me, but I can attribute that to my fantastic colleagues and to the fact that I love organization.  What follows here is a collection of books, interviews, music videos, and short films that I find motivating for one reason or another.  There are so many out there - it is definitely a more crowded world than ever!  I am amazed at the revolution of content accessibility.  What I mean is, 20 years ago, producing a CD was a major undertaking and very expensive.  Now, we all have access, any time we want, to distribute any content we can dream up.  If you want to discuss any of the titles below, shoot me an email or tweet @Virtualtbone).


I also love live interviews and video... Here's a few that have influenced me lately...!

Peluso Microphone Lab Presents: Yellow Couch Sessions Sean Rowe: Razor of Love I've been living with Sean Rowe's (http://www.anti.com/artists/sean-rowe/) incredible new record "Madman" since July and haven't stopped listening to it since.
