Trombone lessons -
Adam’s Music is proud to offer private, in-store trombone lessons from Byron Sleugh at our music store in West Los Angeles.
Byron is a versatile low brass player from Clovis, CA. He’s an accomplished player on tenor, bass, and contrabass trombones, as well as tuba and euphonium.
Byron’s versatility makes him popular with a diverse cast of performing musicians, including Wayne Bergeron, Gordon Goodwin, Frank Ticheli, Jiggs Whigham, John Clayton, and many others.
Byron’s playing has earned him many accolades. He has received two DownBeat awards, and he performed at the Monterey Jazz Festival in 2014. His chamber group won the brass division of the University of North Texas Chamber Competition in 2017. That same year, he won the bass trombone/euphonium position in the Disneyland Resort All-American College Band where he spent 11 weeks learning from some of today’s most successful musicians. In addition to spirited live performances, Byron is in demand for recording, including album sessions at Maximus Media, Crystal Clear Sound, and the famous Capitol Records in Los Angeles.
Byron is a recent graduate of the University of North Texas (UNT). He is currently pursuing a Master’s of Music at the University of California – Los Angeles (UCLA). In his time at UNT, he was a member of the Two O’Clock Lab Band, Symphonic Band, and Concert Orchestra. In addition to performing in these ensembles, Byron prepared four recitals in just as many years. He has maintained a busy schedule performing with local orchestras, bands, and theaters, as well as teaching in local schools. Check out Byron’s impressive senior recital at UNT:
In 2015, Byron was elected as Treasurer of Trombones of North Texas (TNT), a student organization on campus dedicated to bringing trombone related music and art to the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Over the last two years, Byron served as president. Under his watch, TNT prospered, hosting artists such as John Fedchock, James Markey, Jorgen van Rijen, Marshall Gilkes, and more. Byron was recently featured in Voyage Dallas for his role with TNT. In his last semester at UNT, Byron was honored as the “Outstanding Undergraduate Student in Brass” at Honors Day.
