MusiciansMax Gregg

Max Gregg started his musical journey at age 8, picking up the trombone as it was the "loudest one in the band".

He continued with the trombone throughout school, learning from Greg Van Der Struik in 2017 and 2018. In 2019, he enrolled in the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, where he would learn from Ashley Carter, Nigel Crocker and Scott Kinmont. Max has played extensively in various ensembles including orchestras, wind ensembles, brass bands, jazz bands and chamber ensembles. In 2023, Max graduated from the Conservatorium.

Max has been lucky enough to play in masterclasses with prominent international trombonists, including Peter Steiner and Berlin Philharmonic Principal Trombone Jonathon Ramsay.

In 2022, Max won the Sydney Conservatorium Concerto Competition and had the opportunity to perform the Tomasi Trombone Concerto with the Sydney Conservatorium Orchestra.

Max is commencing his studies at the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) in 2024, learning under Colin Prichard.

In his spare time, Max enjoys art, drawing and maintaining his impressive Duolingo streak.
