Introduction
Shauna McFaul recently completed coursework in the Double Degree program at Lawrence University, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish and a Bachelor of Music degree with a double major in Instrumental Music Education and Trombone Performance. 

Her studies at Lawrence have covered a wide variety of topics with her most noticeable achievements residing in the field of jazz pedagogy. Under the guidance of Professor Nick Keelan, Shauna completed an honors project entitled "Developing Depth and Dimension: Instructional tools and practices to facilitate and encourage the growth of young jazz musicians" and was awarded honors for her work. As part of her exploration of jazz instruction with young musicians, Shauna studied composition and arranging with Professor Fred Sturm. One of her resulting works was an arrangement of John Coltrane's "Naima" written for beginning jazz ensemble. This arrangement was selected as a commission for the 2013 Lawrence University Jazz Weekend Festival.

In addition to her academic work, Shauna enjoys teaching trombone privately, as well as working with chamber ensembles, bands and jazz ensembles in schools in the Fox Cities area.
