Jules Rowell

San Francisco Bay Area native Jules Rowell first began playing music on the violin in the 1950s. During high school, his music instructor encouraged Jules to play the valve trombone, which he has done ever since.

In addition to a Master’s Degree in music from San Francisco State University, Jules has put in several years of study at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. His Master’s Degree specialized in the music of Duke Ellington. Jules has literally taken hundreds of private lessons with such symphonic performers as Will Sudmeier and Ned Meredith and with jazz artists Phil Wilson and Don Doane.
