About Bob McChesney
Bob McChesney was born in Baltimore, Maryland, and began playing the trombone in the fourth grade as part of his public school music program. He has since evolved into a world-renowned trombone soloist and an authority on trombone pedagogy. Bob McChesney’s trademark as a trombonist is the beauty of his sound, a lightening-fast technique, and his emotional connection to the music. With complete mastery of the instrument and extensive knowledge of jazz harmony, McChesney has distinguished himself as one of the pre-eminent soloists in the world, not only in the realm of jazz and improvisation, but as an interpreter of the most difficult and highly technical Classical repertoire, as well.
Primarily self-taught, at a young age, Bob discovered a unique way of articulating on the slide trombone, called “doodle tonguing”. He has since authored what is considered to be the definitive treatise on the subject, called, “Doodle Studies and Etudes”. The method book has been critically acclaimed and endorsed by trombonists and music educators all over the world.
