Welcome to the completely redesigned!

In celebration of my new website, I am making a special offer.  Anyone who signs up for my brand new monthly email newsletter will receive a free track from "The Low Brass Stylings of Andrew Hitz & Lance LaDuke".  In addition, 10 people will be chosen randomly in the next month to receive a free copy of my brand new brass quintet album, "Brass Recording Project Vol. 1: The Arrangements of JD Shaw" which isn't even released yet.

Finally, one person who signs up for my newsletter in the next month will be selected at random to receive their choice of either a 30-minute lesson or business consultation via Skype.

Thanks for visiting my new site and for signing up for the newsletter!



Here's a collection of links of some of the projects I have going on currently with some of my most popular blog posts below that:
