Tim Dueppen

Trombonist | Educator

Hello, and Welcome!

I am pleased to announced that I will be returning to Texas in July of 2014 as an Assistant Professor of Music at Lamar University's Mary Morgan Moore Department of Music. I am excited to work with extremely talented students and an amazing faculty and staff.  I am looking forward to multiple CD projects this year, working with the Lamar Faculty Brass Quintet and the Alias Brass Quintet, as well as continuing on my Book. Look for more updates on my move right here on my home website!

Welcome to the online home of trombonist and educator Tim Dueppen. This site will provide information on my upcoming performances, clinics, recording projects, and all professional playing events. It will also be a source of information for my low brass students, who can download exercises, lesson assignments, and general tips on playing. I will also post information on my current research, such as my most recent project: the use of the trombone by Mozart as a sacred signifier in his operas. I will write blogs that will address certain playing issues, and give tips on how to fix these problems. I hope that you will enjoy my website as much as I have enjoyed setting it up. Also, a big thanks to my web designer Joe Sweeney. Please visit timdueppen.com often, and email me at any time with any questions or comments.
