What I'm Up to Now
Last updated January 3, 2019
On trumpet... Christmas gig season is over, and I’m jumping right into a run of the musical Chicago, which is something completely different than what I’ve been doing the past few months. This quarter I’m also picking and preparing for a recital, date TBD.
In teaching... I just finished a booklet of range building for beginners, and now I’m working on building up a booklet from there to high C. I’m also perpetually trying to create the most effective and efficient warm-up for my students.
Current read... Essentialism by Greg McKeown. After a busy and exhausting few months that led to illness and fatigue, I’m learning to say no to more so I can do better when I say “Hell yea!”
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.
