The trombone studio at CCM offers a full range of musical experiences for the undergraduate and graduate trombone student. Ensemble opportunities include three orchestras, wind ensemble, symphonic band, chamber winds, two jazz bands, jazz combos, contemporary music ensemble, brass choir, orchestral repertoire class, brass quintets, trombone quartets and trombone choir.

At CCM, each trombone student receives personal attention and a customized curriculum designed to meet his or her personal performance goals. A priority is placed on reaching one's full potential regardless of the focus of the lessons.

An important part of the CCM trombone experience is studio class, in which ideas are shared, students play for one another and guest artists visit. Furthermore, mock auditions, group warm-ups and trombone choir provide a sense of community among trombone students and encourage all students to progress at the fastest possible rate.
