Hi! I'm Aidan, a trombone performance graduate student at UCLA. I've been playing euphonium, tuba, tenor and bass trombones for 14 years. I am currently a teaching assistant at UCLA and teach several other groups, both in the US and in Japan.

You may have seen my YouTube channel, where I have made instructional videos since 2007 on a variety of issues.
