Brittany Collins is a graduate of the University of Lethbridge with a Bachelor of Music in trombone. In band, she tried almost every instrument but ended up eventually settling on the trombone. She picked it up late in high school while looking for a challenge and hasn’t looked back since.
During her time at the U of L, she had the pleasure of studying under Nick Sullivan. She also has attended the Domaine Forget summer camp where she has had lessons with Pierre Beaudry, bass trombonist of the Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal; Evelin Auger, principal trombonist of the Quebec Symphony Orchestra; and Douglas Burden, bass trombonist of the National Arts Centre Orchestra and solo performer. Additionally, Brittany has had the opportunity to perform in master classes for the renowned solo performers Joseph Alessi, Alain Trudel, Nitzan Haroz and James Box.
Brittany has a passion for performance and placed second in the 2013 Lethbridge Symphony Orchestra’s Young Artist Competition. Today, she stays active in the music community by performing with the Lethbridge Community Gold Band and Brass Choir, filling in with the Lethbridge Symphony Orchestra, and playing in as many trombone ensembles as possible.
As a teacher, Brittany loves to share her passion of music and low brass with her students of all ages and skill levels. Outside the practice room, she spends her days managing a retail store and takes an interest in management and leadership approaches.
