Welcome!

Thank you for visiting JacobsTrombone. Here you will find information on Centennial, CO trombonist Todd Jacobs (that’s me!) and my current activities related to the trombone.

Please take a look around, watch the featured YouTube Video, and check out the “Useful Links” page. Feel free to leave comments on posts, or contact me to provide feedback.

Aurora Symphony has a new Principal Trombone

This should not come as news to anyone keeping up with the Events page, but I was offered the Principal chair of the Aurora Symphony Orchestra. It has been an exciting season so far, especially since the Music Director search has given us a different conductor for each concert. Join us for our final concert in May!

New Events

I am substituting with the Aurora Symphony for the opening concert of the 35th Anniversary season. There is a possibility for this to turn into a permanent position. Come enjoy the concert featuring Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4, Chausson Poeme, and Verdi La Forza Del Destino Overture. Visit the Projects/Events page for more details.

Jacobs Family Plus One

I am proud to announce the birth of my second daughter, Elizabeth Jacobs, on July 2, 2012! She is teeny tiny and it is so cute to watch her big sister experience having someone smaller than her. Mother and baby are both doing fine.

New Teaching Website!

Hello everyone!

It sure has been a while since I have updated this site. There are a number of reasons for that, but one of the main is that I have been working on a new teaching website, “The Brass Coach”! You can visit it at www.thebrasscoach.com.

I am really excited about The Brass Coach! With only one website I was having a hard time giving enough design attention to both my professional performing career and to my teaching studio. By having two sites I will be able to focus each one much more effectively on its main purpose instead of trying to cram two related - but different - goals into the purvue of a single website. JacobsTrombone will work more towards promoting myself as a performing artist, while The Brass Coach will act as the gateway for my teaching studio and ensemble coaching endeavors.

There is still plenty of work to be done, but I see a lot of potential in this new arrangement. Please head on over to The Brass Coach and let me know what you think!
