Thanks to Nathan Zgonc and Brian Hecht for having me to give a masterclass with their Slide School class. What a great educational platform they've built! You all should check it out!
I am happy to be virtually joining the New Zealand International Brass Festival this January!! How I would love to be there in person. That would be a bucket list trip!
There are going to be a lot of virtual classes coming up this year. COVID has made lots of things harder, but people have even better access to high level teachers and performers than ever. I have already scheduled classes with several schools. Click on my calendar page to see where. I am really looking forward to hearing some great playing this fall!
The Manhattan School of Music has created a cool new course called Beyond the Excerpts, which I will be teaching this fall. I will be working with the low brass students on about a hundred pieces in the standard repertoire, which will help us to make up for the lost ensemble experiences they are missing due to COVID. I think it is going to be really cool, and hopefully we can keep doing this after things return to normal.
Now that CD Baby is not distributing albums, I have fixed the buttons to buy VITAL SIGNS. Check it out on Amazon or iTunes!
