Welcome to this week's episode! Meet Israel Gutierrez, fourth-year bass trombonist here at Oberlin Conservatory. Israel is a cherished friend of ours and we were honored to sit down and have a genuine conversation in his living room. In this segment, we talk about instruments and their personalities, how Israel chose to play music/bass trombone, and healthy ways to approach the practice room. This is a two-part episode since we had so many great things to talk about - keep your eyes peeled for Part 2!
