 Welcome to the Official Site of Trombonist, Jim Pugh

The Complete Trombonist Workshop


Register now for the second annual, Complete Trombonist Workshop, from June 26 - July 2, 2016 at the University of Illinois!

It's a week-long workshop spent with me, for the trombonist who is looking to be versatile in all aspects of the business.  We'll spend each day examining different genres and situations that a typical trombonist will encounter in his/her career as a working trombonist.  From orchestral playing (principal/sectional) to improvisation to big band (lead/sectional) to multiphonics to music business (and this is just our first year!!).   Each night, there'll be free time and a concert at one of the local venues, here, in Champaign, IL.   Food and room are included in the fee.    This is our inaugural year, so it's sure to be a blast!!!    

This year's guest artists will be Tom Gibson, Jenn Baker, Reginald Chapman and Lindsay Gross.   More information and registration can be found at the official website - www.completetrombonist.com

University of Illinois 


Are you interested in the jazz trombone studio at the UofI?  There are lots of playing opportunities at the school such as the Jazz Trombone Ensemble, the Concert Jazz Band, several jazz combos, Latin Bands and even gigging at local clubs!

If you're in the Champaign-Urbana area or even the Chicago area (we're a 2 1/2 hour drive south or a 30 minute plane ride!!), don't hesitate to drop by Smith Hall to say hi, wander the halls, talk to other students, check out a rehearsal or a concert!
