What I'm Up to Now
Last updated June 19, 2019
On trumpet... Wedding season is in full swing, and now that the school year has ended, I’m practicing bit more, which is nice. I’m mainly working on developing a couple different maintenance and warm-up routines and working some orchestra excerpts back up.
In teaching... This summer I’m doing a little less teaching than during the year, so I’m using the extra time to do more planning and work on some standard progressions to work off of with my students.
Current read... Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari. This is a fascinating read, and is well written, educational, and entertaining. I highly recommend this book to everyone.
Projects… I’m (still) working on making “practice guides” for WSMA Solos to help students, especially those without access to a proper trumpet teacher, prepare Class A solos. I am also diving into the world of coding, and am currently working on learning HTML, mostly for fun, and to see where it leads me.
