Biography

Neill Humfeld was a distinguished trombone player and educator as well as an ardent promoter of the ITA. In addition to serving as president of the ITA from 1980 to 1982, his career included more than thrity-two years as trombone instructor, band director, music education specialist, and administrator at East Texas State University. Humfeld's teaching style and reputation earned him the highest regard among his peers, both at East Texas State and in the International Trombone Association. After his term as president of the ITA, Humfeld served as the International Trombone Workshop director until his untimely death in 1991 following an extended illness. In 1992, the Neill Humfeld Award for Excellence in Teaching was proposed and approved by the ITA Board. The annual award is a plaque endorsed by the ITA and presented at the Festival to recognize the life of the late Neill Humfeld and his contributions to the trombone profession.
