She's been playing solo in the orchestra since 2016, was solo trombonist from 2009 - 2012 in the Bruckner Orchestra, Linz Austria. And has degrees in Physics and Physico-Informatics at the Keio Universität in Tokyo.
Mayumi Shimizu is a really great player. I don't really know her, but auditioned for one or two of the same universities at the same day. She was definitely on another level. And the SWR is an extremely good orchestra! There is another female trombonist in the orchestra as well. (The orchestra has been two separate ones until a few years ago, that's why they have so many trombonists)

This might be controversial, but I would also add Sasha Romero to this list.

So I wonder where I should be found on this current theme... as a mere male trombonist but taught by a woman trombonist should this make me better or worse than I am!!! Also married to a woman cornet player... counselling clearly needed... Doug

Gosh Doug - not sure how to counsel you. Do you play extra-sensitively, with a feminine touch? :idk:

Nah. You’re a musician married to another musician, and you’re studying with a teacher. Everything else is distraction.

Just remember: your bass trombone has more brass in it than 3 of her cornets. :cool:

This is a great thread and discussion. It is pretty funny that the first entry in the Glisandoo blog says that women were not encouraged to play trombone because the embouchure needed would make you "ugly" and today people pay money for face yoga to learn exercises to keep their face looking young.
