Timothy Myers

In 2022, Timothy Myers finished his career as Principal Trombone of the St. Louis Symphony. He developed an interest in the structure and function of the human body during a period of study with the legendary teacher and Chicago Symphony tubist Arnold Jacobs. After discovering the existence of Body Mapping, Tim realized that it was a direct path toward achieving the knowledge and understanding that he had been looking for. He became a Licensed Body Mapping Educator in 2020, making him the first member of a Group 1 (major) US symphony orchestra to do so.

Tim introduced many solo works to St. Louis audiences, and he appeared as soloist with the St. Louis Symphony many times. He was also a founding member of The Trombones of the Saint Louis Symphony, a trombone quartet whose members were also his section mates in the orchestra. The quartet performed widely in the US, commissioned and premiered many new works, and released two recordings: 4.1 and Fleur de Lis. Two more recordings of the quartet, Season’s Greetings from The Trombones of the Saint Louis Symphony and Confluence, will be released in 2023.

Since his retirement from the St. Louis Symphony, Tim and his wife, Dana, a violinist, relocated to San Francisco. He plans to continue his performing career from his new home base. Tim especially looks forward to helping musicians discover their own body maps through private and class instruction.
