Honors Band Rehearsal Clips

Here are the sound clips from last night’s rehearsal.

Please feel free to post your CONSTRUCTIVE comments and share your thoughts. We are not interested in this was good and this was bad (that’s evaluation) … we want OBSERVATION. “When the trumpets played the octave slurs it was smooth, however, their sounds were very forced when they played loud” is more helpful than “trumpets done good.” Just click on the speech bubble above for the comments section.

Sometimes I don’t hear everything that happens in rehearsal because a lot of thoughts are going through my mind (believe it or not). So, these recordings will allow me to listen to our rehearsals and make a list of things that I would like us to improve upon. I invite you (students) to do the same. Your suggestions are ALWAYS welcome! See you on Monday! Read more

Shades of Jazz Trumpet Duet

A couple of my students are playing this duet … called “Shades of Jazz” by Ben Reehl

With a little more time (and practice), the following video can be edited to become a full feature film! RIGHT!
Or, if the trumpet players could play, then no editing would be required. Go figure!

Here is the 45ish second VIDEO of a trumpet duet: (MLG and BEN)

Here is the 2 minuteish AUDIO of the trumpet duet: (MLG and MLG)
