    “On the Spot: Nick Cohen, trombone studies and media arts freshman”

    I have never met someone who plays the trombone, nonetheless majoring in it. Tell me a little about it and how did you get involved with that?

    It isn’t exactly a performance degree. It is just a general study of the instrument type of degree, and I started playing the trombone my junior year of high school, and before that I just played the tuba in my school band.

    Are there are any popular songs that you know how to play on the trombone or that are pretty cool?

    Not really.

    What is your favorite song to play on the trombone?

    I like playing jazz. I play a lot of jazz.

    Are you going to be attending the UA Symphony (Orchestra) concert this weekend, the mariachi influenced one? I am not missing it.

    I’ll be out of town this weekend.

    So random question but I am always noticing things around campus and I have noticed that there is a lot of diversity but at the same time there is some prejudice and racism being thrown around. Do you agree or have you noticed anything going on like that at all?

    I haven’t noticed anything.

    Oh, well your other major is media arts. What do you want to do with that?

    I want to be a screen writer so I am taking a bunch of film history courses and things like that.

    OK, what is your favorite show on, not Bravo, but the channel with “”Entourage,”” HBO?

    “”Entourage”” actually. “”Entourage”” is my favorite show.
