Duo Seraphim - 20 Heavenly Duets for Trombones


Contact Me




As a performer I find myself working all over the world on many different projects with some of the most inspirational, enthusiastic and brilliant musicians around. This experience, together an infectious enthusiasm, forms the basis of my teaching career, which runs alongside my performing and involves courses, workshops and private lessons.

December 2010 saw the release of my solo CD 'Songs Without Words'. Featuring music by Monteverdi, Schütz, Frescobaldi, Castello, Fontana, Ortiz, Van Eyck and brand new divisions and improvisations on classic songs, this is the first full-length CD to feature the sackbut as a solo instrument. More... is a 'jumping off' point and gathering of information relating to the various aspects of my career as freelance trombone player and teacher including my ensembles, teaching, solo CD and sackbut tutor book.

"Woolf again impresses the listener with impeccable intonation coupled with virtuosic technique, always with suave phrasing."
Taken from an Historic Brass Society review of the Caecilia-Concert's latest recording, Schmelzer & Co.


It is Adam Woolf''s virtue that he has almost single-handedly put the sackbut as a solo instrument on the map.
