Carol Jarvis returns as Tutor in Trombone

Trombonist Carol Jarvis is another RNCM alum making a welcome return this term, joining a fantastic team of tutors within the School of Wind, Brass and Percussion.

Since graduating in 2001, Carol has developed an incredible career as a freelance trombonist, session musician, arranger, orchestrator and voiceover artist. She’s appeared as guest principal trombone with the UK’s major symphony orchestras and has toured and recorded extensively with stars such as Sting, Paloma Faith, Seal, MUSE, Daughter, Bon Jovi and Ellie Goulding.

Her session work features on numerous soundtracks for feature films, advertisements, jingles, albums and singles and she regularly performs in London’s West End shows. Her orchestrations have featured on albums at the top of the UK and US billboard charts, won the Mercury Music Prize, been recorded at the famous Capitol Studios in Hollywood and also played during The Oscars.

Carol, who is President of the International Trombone Festival and is a Rath trombones endorsed artist, said: ‘It’s a real pleasure to join the incredible list of trombone staff at the RNCM, and follow in the footsteps of my teachers. I’ve been back several times over the years, tutoring on the Pop Music Course, so it’ll be really nice to commute back a bit more regularly and get more involved with the trombone department – I have many fond memories at the RNCM!’

Carol graduated with the highest qualifications possible, during which time she gained many awards including major scholarships in the UK and USA.
