The Brass Junkies: Scott Hartman - Episode 48

Andrew Hitz

Listen via


Scott Hartman, Lecturer in Trombone at Yale University joined us to discuss his incredibly successful and diverse career. Scott has taught and played concerts throughout the world and in all fifty states. He regularly performs and records with the Yale Brass Trio, Proteus 7, the Millennium Brass, the Brass Band of Battle Creek, and the trombone quartet Four of a Kind. Mr. Hartman spends several weeks each summer in residence at the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival. 

Scott covers his thoughts on how the chamber music business changed over the years since from his time with Empire Brass to today. We learn of the important distinction between Scott A. Hartman and Scott P. Hartman and get some great Empire Brass stories.

Oh and at one point, Scott may have sounded possessed. And he can be a meathead.

The Brass Junkies: Amy McCabe

I had the privilege of playing with Amy on Easter this year at the National Cathedral here in Washington, DC. She's got one of the best trumpet sounds you will ever hear in your life. Everything looks so "natural" when she plays. (Translation: She's done a ton of work!)

Her story is a fascinating one. She went to undergrad to become an elementary school librarian and then ended up one of the world's best trumpet players well before the age of 30. It's a story worth hearing so we're glad she was willing to be a guest on the podcast!
