Having spent his career in the Pacific Northwest and the Southern United States, Dr. Aaron Wilson is honored to be a part of the Brandon University School of Music as the Assistant Professor of Low Brass. Prior to his appointment at Brandon, Wilson performed with the Bay Street Brassworks, a brass and percussion ensemble based out of Indianapolis. His involvement with the group enabled him to perform educational and community concerts along the east coast. In addition, Wilson has performed with several professional ensembles including the Raleigh Symphony
Orchestra, the Piedmont Triad Jazz Orchestra, the Market Street Brass, and the Durham Symphony, where he served as the principal trombonist.
An energetic solo artist, Wilson presents recitals regularly across North America. His repertoire selection is highly varied, featuring standards of the trombone repertoire, chamber music selections, electroacoustic works, and offthe-wall avant-garde pieces. Additionally, Wilson has been featured as a guest artist with the North Carolina Trombone Festival, the UNCG University Band, the Whatcom Wind Ensemble, and the Indiana Junior All-State Band. Wilson also has presented several masterclasses at middle schools, high schools, and colleges across the United
States. Specializing in trombone, euphonium, and tuba performance instruction, Wilson’s approach to teaching is anchored in developing healthy playing habits in an intensive, yet fun learning environment. His research into online performance instruction and low brass pedagogy has allowed him to give several presentations at the Carolina Band Festival, the North Carolina Trombone Festival, and the North Carolina Association of Colleges and Teacher Educators Spring and Fall Forums, and the UNCG Graduate Research and Creativity Expo, where he received honorable mention.
