Performances: No performances scheduled in June at the moment, but…
Brass Lassie: July 9th, sets at 11a and 2pm, Minnesota Scottish Fair
Rehearsals: Rehearsal for “Brass Lassie”was last Friday and it sure was fun! I would have to say this is the most unique and interesting gig of my career to date. I hope you can make the performance!
Metro Brass met on Sunday night to read some new charts. Porgy and Bess, my heart.
Practicing: Still adding tunes to my Tune Library! I’d like to get to 100 by the end of June- can you help?
Listening: I heard one of my favorite pieces on the radio the other day and it was just perfect timing. I was stuck in traffic, it was raining…well, you can enjoy it anytime:
(The old Pope’s in this one, but DUDAMEL’S HAIR THO)
Teaching: Get ready students, because it’s the summer of tunes. We’ll be learning tunes for ear training, key practice, articulation, range, transposition…everything. See above for the TL. You can pick out a tune in advance if you’d like!
Studying: UMN entrance exams. Oh god, speaking of ear training. Mild anxiety attack as I try to remember how to do melodic dictation quickly.
Relaxing: Not enough of this in the past week. But this weekend: NYC here I come.
