What I'm Doing Now
(This is my now page. You should make one too.)
I'm preparing for Brass Day at Shenandoah Conservatory (April 21st) which features the Faculty Quintet performing with the Wind Ensemble, the US Army Quintet playing a recital and me giving a Breathing Gym master class. You can find out more information here.
Still plugging away with my two podcasts: TEM (136 episodes) and Brass Junkies (82 episodes)
What I'm reading: The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined - A good book with hundreds of pages of data showing that in spite of what it seems, violence is decreasing around the globe. A fascinating book so far.
What I'm listening to: A bunch of Cecil Taylor, who sadly passed away yesterday. Genius is an overused term. But he was a genius.
What I'm looking forward to: The Berkshires in two months.
