Trombonist Shawn Bell epitomizes what it means to be a modern craftsman. His playing is steeped in the Jazz tradition but is not bound by its history or stylistic edicts. Bell’s work as a musician and educator engages audiences and students alike to rethink the types of music that can be forged by the trombone.

Where Omaha’s low brass students come to grow

“My teaching style is highly tailored to each student’s individual needs and musical goals. I strive not only to teach my students about the technical aspects of playing a brass instrument, but also to challenge them to think critically about the music they perform and listen to. I believe this fosters a level of engagement that serves students as both young musicians and life-long patrons of the arts.”
