Dear John,
Apologies that it has taken a while for me to get back to you on this one. It appears that "Academy" was a series of professional trombones produced by Besson (now Boosey and Hawkes). To date the instrument you would need a serial number- there are 2 lists available online though. One is for Besson in London and the other for Besson Paris. I hope that this helps. If you would like more information I can try to point you in the right direction to various websites. Best Wishes, Katy
