Bowman Wins Fontana Competition… and a T302

Eric Bowman

Last month, Eric Bowman traveled to the International Trombone Festival in Aarhus, Denmark in order to take part in the ITA’s Carl Fontana Jazz Trombone Competition. He beat out the other talented finalists and won his very own Edwards T302. Eric is a student at Western Michigan University where he studies with Scott Cowan and Steve Wolfinbarger.

A little over a week ago, Eric and his friends stopped by our shop so that I could fit him to one of our jazz horns. Working with talented young players like Eric always reminds me that I need to practice more. It also makes my job that much more rewarding.
