Trombone success

Jasper Rose

RCM Junior Department trombonist Jasper Rose has won the British Trombone Society Carol Jarvis Jazz Competition.

His prize includes an all-expenses paid trip to the USA to attend the Centrum Jazz Workshop in Washington.

Jasper said: “At the competition we had to play two pieces in front of a panel of judges. They said good things about all of us. It was a massive surprise when I won because I was really nervous so I wasn’t paying attention to how well I was playing.”

Jasper has also found fame on YouTube. A video of him playing a plastic trombone, known as a pBone, has received more than 1 million hits!

Congratulations to Jasper!
