The John H. Mead Trombone Literature Collection

We have added 32 scores from the Dr. John H. Mead library.  These scores were gifts from the Mead family and include performance pieces, methods, etudes, etc.  This is a valuable collection for the trombone studio from a former faculty member.  

These scores can be found on the 3rd floor of Drinko.
