Trombonist, Conductor, Teacher
Born in York, England in 1964, Ian Bousfield is one of the most influential and
successful trombonists of our time. From a very early age he played in English
style brass bands to the highest level, something that instilled an incredibly
highly developed sense of ensemble playing which was to serve him well in his
later career as an orchestral player. With the Yorkshire Imperial Band he won
the British Open, National and Yorkshire championships.
After having won the London Symphony Music Scholarship aged fifteen and
serving a spell with the newly formed European Communities Youth Orchestra
under Claudio Abbado, an orchestral career was inevitable. After five years in the
