What I'm Doing Now
(This is my now page. You should make one too.)
I finally (FINALLY) made a website for Band Director's Guide! Still a work in progress but I'm happy with the first iteration.
Just came up with the idea for my next project with Lance LaDuke (hint: it will be an educational offshoot of The Brass Junkies) and we are getting a logo, developing content and planning the launch for a little later this summer!
I recently subbed with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra which always feels like driving a race car.
Just a few days away from teaching at the American Band College again! My first time teaching there was 17 years ago. Time flies...
I have started making short videos for The Entrepreneurial Musician on Instagram.
I recently finished 14 interviews in 13 days for both The Entrepreneurial Musician and The Brass Junkies podcasts as I get ahead of schedule before my summer travels.
I recently finished a 7-year run at George Mason University. It was a good run but I'm headed in a different direction now.
What I'm Listening to: A whole lot of Living Colour lately.
What I'm Reading: How to Make It in the New Music Business by Ari Herstand - Really great book on today's music business. A lot more focus on bands and clubs and things like that than I'm used to but it is all good stuff for me to know for consulting and TEM!
I'm counting down the days until I head north for the summer (which is tomorrow!):
