The British Trombone Society offers paid membership of the Society, which includes full access to the website and all the benefits of membership.
The BTS magazine, The Trombonist, and website are free to members. The magazine is published quarterly and contains articles on every facet of trombone playing - from early music to jazz and avant garde - and takes account of the needs and interests of all players from the beginner to the advanced player in every style of music.
The Trombonist is well-supported by instrument manufacturers and music publishers and contains the latest information in these areas, plus regional and concert news, reviews and letters pages. Members gain free or reduced charge entry to BTS events with the chance to meet, listen to, and learn from the greatest players and teachers, plus they also have the opportunity to meet hundreds of trombonists from home and abroad.
