    Doug Warner holds degrees from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (B.M. in Trombone) and the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (M.M. and D.M.A., both in Trombone). Warner’s primary instructors have included James Ryon, Allen Ladner, Harry Maddox, Tony Chipurn, and David Vining.

    In addition to his duties teaching applied trombone and music history and chairing the Department of Music Performance Studies at Lee, Warner performs with the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera as principal trombone, a position he has held since 1985. He is also in demand as a freelance performer and teacher in the greater Chattanooga area. His reviews of current recordings are published in the International Trombone Association Journal.

    From 1986 to 1997, Warner was a member of the King’s Brass, a nine-member sacred brass summer touring ensemble, with which he has recorded four albums. His arrangements can be heard on several of the group’s recordings. A substitute with the Huntsville (Alabama) Symphony Orchestra he has also performed with the Dayton (Ohio) Philharmonic, the Nashville Chamber Orchestra, and the Northern Kentucky Symphony.

    A native of Hanover, Pa., Warner moved to Chattanooga in 1984 to begin his collegiate studies. Prior to his teaching at Lee University, he taught applied low brass at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Southern Adventist University, Covenant College, and Cadek Conservatory. From 1989 to 1996, he served as manager of the Chattanooga Symphony Youth Orchestra.

    Warner and his wife, Melissa, an elementary educator, have two teenaged daughters, Abby and Morgan.
