Reading: Keys To Natural Performance For Brass Players, Robert D Weast. An older book but a goodie.
Practicing: Red Dragonfly is still on my stand, as is the second Kopprasch book.
Rehearsing: Mozart Requiem with Exultate Choir and Orchestra. I’m playing bass trombone. See below!
Performing: 3 concerts of Mozart Requiem with Exultate, March 6, 7, 8. Various locations around the Cities! Come and enjoy.
Listening: M. Ward, End of Amnesia; Jenny Lewis, The Voyager; Heart, Dreamboat Annie; R&B songs (by the likes of Stevie Wonder, Thelma Houston, James Hunter, Etta James, etc) as research/arrangements for The Satellites, my soon-to-be-gigging soul/r&b group.
Teaching: Rhythmic recognition and dictation this week. Get ready. You’re going to clap and count.
Relaxing: Walked by the river last night with my friend Susan and her dog Maple. Signed up for 30 Days of Biking again (year 4 for me!). Dreaming about spring.
