SSG Kyle Price, a native of Lexington, SC, joined the U.S. Army Band “Pershing’s Own” in April of 2019. He spent his former two years of high school at the South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities where he studied trombone under Dr. David Hamilton. He then moved to Boston, MA where he spent his undergraduate years at the New England Conservatory studying with Toby Oft, Principal Trombone of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and learning frequently from James Markey, Steve Lange, and Norman Bolter of the BSO. It was there that he began participating in a variety of competitions and festivals such as the Southeastern Trombone Symposium, Aspen Music Festival, and International Trombone Festival, as well as performing with the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra and Eureka Ensemble, and eventually won his position with the U.S. Army Band “Pershing’s Own”.
Since then Kyle has appeared with the Richmond Symphony and the Washington Trombone Ensemble, as well as performing with the other ensembles within the U.S. Army Band. In his spare time, Price enjoys working on new musical projects, biking and exercising, and woodturning, which led to the founding of his small business “Peck Custom Designs” where he creates trombone triggers, batons, and other woodturning projects.
