Zoltan Kiss Appointed International Tutor in Trombone

The Philip Jones Centre for Brass at the RNCM is delighted to announce the appointment of Zoltan Kiss as its International Tutor in Trombone.

Zoltan visited the RNCM at the beginning of March and made an immediate and striking impression with a recital delivered to a capacity audience and two days of teaching. Zoltan, who was born in Hungary, enjoys wide international acclaim for his virtuosic solo playing, commitment to teaching, and membership of Mnozil Brass. His appointment as International Tutor replaces that of Christopher Houlding, who taught trombone at the RNCM for almost 30 years.

Talking of Christopher’s departure, John Miller, Head of the School of Wind, Brass and Percussion, commented: ‘Christopher Houlding started teaching at the RNCM in 1986 and did much for almost 30 years to maintain a wonderful standard of brass playing in his many capacities. All the brass tutors at the RNCM wish him well in his new job at the Birmingham Conservatory, and I personally send immense thanks to Chris and a very enthusiastic welcome to Zoltan.’
