Born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, Gabe Mueller began playing trombone when she was 10 years old. Having fallen completely in love with performing her instrument, Gabe traveled down to Denton, Texas, in 2003 to study music at the University of North Texas, earning a Bachelor of Music in Trombone Performance and a Minor in Music Theory. She has been fortunate to study with several great teachers, including Jan Kagarice, Vern Kagarice, Tony Baker, Steve Lange, and Donny Pinson.
While in the North Texas area, Gabe was a freelance trombonist, performing with various ensembles including the Flower Mound Symphony Orchestra and Sherman Symphony Orchestra. Now back in St. Louis, Gabe plays lead trombone in the Matt McCallie Jazz Orchestra and has been heard in the pit orchestra for productions at Stray Dog Theatre, Gateway Center for Performing Arts, Fr. William Scheid Players, and Maryland Heights Community Theatre. She is also an active church musician, soloist, and music teacher. More about Gabe at www.gabemueller.com.
