Christopher Bill’s amazing “Happy” Trombone Loop!

There are loads of ways to make exciting and enjoyable music – we all know it’s great fun to sing in a band and play in orchestras and we are all well versed in the art of shower singing, but a very talented Trombonist has introduced us to his super cool way of making tracks – with a looping program called Ableton Live 9. Have a listen to his ingenious arrangement of Pharrell Williams’ song, “Happy”.

Christopher Bill, the trombonist you’re watching in the above video, is a classically trained trombone player currently studying at the SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Music in New York City. If you enjoyed “Happy” then why not check out his YouTube channel? You’ll find delights such as Frozen’s hit track “Let It Go”, constructed of nothing but clicks, claps and some very skillful Trombone playing.
