Nicholas Lord is a Tenor Trombonist in his first year studying for Bachelor of Music at the Griffith Conservatorium of Music in Queensland Australia and already has an impressive list of accomplishments despite his age.
He started playing at the age of 8 and quickly became very proficient and showed a mastery of his chosen instrument. Nicholas started competing in State Music competitions in Tasmania winning his first Junior Brass Competition at age 10, this gave him a boost and from there his skills on the trombone grew exponentially.
In 2018, Nicholas won the Australian Junior Trombone Champion and placed in the top 5 in the Australian Senior Trombone section at age 13 and he also took out the Tasmanian Senior Trombone Champion. Nicholas become a “Derwent Valley Music Scholarship Recipient” in 2019 also taking out both junior and senior Trombone Champion and the momentous effort of winning the “Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra Aviva Scholarship for Orchestral Brass” under the dedicated teaching of David Robins who is the 1st Trombonist of the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra.
The next couple years were obviously challenging due to the lockdowns, with the lack of ensembles being able to get together and rehearse, Nicholas took the opportunity to refine his solo trombone skills even more with the help of his teacher Mr Monte Mumford. Nicholas competed once again in the Tasmanian music competitions and again took out the State “Senior Champion for Tenor Trombone”.
Nicholas also worked with the Tasmanian Youth Orchestra on multiple occasions throughout 2020/2021. Nicholas attended Launceston College and was awarded the “Music 3”, “University of Tasmania Tech” and “Acknowledged for Performing Arts College Service” awards for 2021.
