Biographical details

Scott Kinmont has been teaching at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music since 2005 and is one of Australia’s leading brass players. An accomplished player of both the trombone and euphonium, Scott has the unusual distinction of winning international solo competitions on both instruments. In 1993 he won the United Musical Instruments International trombone solo competition held in the US, and in 1999 was the winner of the International Tubamania solo euphonium competition held in Australia. As a Fulbright Award recipient for the visual and performing arts in 2002, he completed a Master of Music and was a guest lecturer in euphonium at Northwestern University in Chicago.

His performance career began with his appointment to the Sydney Symphony at the age of 20, and he has since appeared as a guest artist with orchestras in Europe, Australia and Hong Kong. He is a regular featured guest artist at many of Australia's leading musical institutions and at many of this country's most important brass symposiums. He has appeared as a soloist with a variety of ensembles, including brass bands, jazz ensembles and orchestras. Scott has also been a member of many of Australia's leading ensembles, including the Canberra Trombone Quartet (prizewinners at the Yamaha International Brass Ensemble Competition, held in the US in 1993), Sydney Brass Ensemble, Sydney Symphony Brass, Sydney Baroque Brass, and the Australian Trombone Quartet.

Collaborations with young Australian composers have resulted in several pieces written expressly for him. In 2003 in Chicago, he premiered one such piece, a euphonium concerto by Peter Keller, and in 2008, he premiered Lee Bracegirdle's Euphonium Concerto with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.

Scott is a devoted music educator, guiding his students through a busy schedule that includes a weekly trombone class, trombone ensemble and solo recital performances, mock auditions, orchestral sectionals and audition preparation. Former and current students hold positions in orchestras in Australia, Europe and the US. In addition to conducting the Conservatorium's Trombone Ensemble, Scott has also conducted many community and semi-professional ensembles, including performances for national broadcast. He has recently held masterclasses in the US and China.
