Trombonist – Composer – Educator

"Christian Pincock is the Northwest's leading authority on Soundpainting and Live Composition. His educational workshops are innovative, engaging, and challenging, whether he's working with middle school students or professional improvisers. His work has impacted how I think about and teach improvisation."—Steve Treseler, Saxophonist & Teaching Artist

"Christian Pincock has been teaching me how to play the trumpet for seven months. I enjoy working with him, and am happy with my progress during our weekly half-hour lessons. His teaching style is calm and focused. He explains complicated ideas well, sometimes in a few words that I understand more over time while I am playing. I leave my lessons excited and eager to practice. Christian is a very good teacher."—Kate Anthony, student
