I’d just like to apologize for not posting that much during the past week. With the semester coming to a close, I have been extremely busy!

I’ve been working on my solo piece for juries, which were today.

I’m okay with how juries went. Scales were fine, although my nerves got the best of me at some parts during my piece.

Also! My fellow trombone player is letting me try out his King 3b concert series (1977 pictured above) for a while to see if I want to buy it for around $600. Great slide, and very flexible tone, mainly for lead playing, which I do a lot in jazz. I played my solo on it, and I love the sound.

Merry Christmas to me? I think so!

Hope all of you are doing well!

Janacek - Concertino


A favorite work by Janacek for @allegro-and-old-lace. This work has a great ensemble in my opinion: the textures from each member creates so much out of so little

We’ve all seen this video and thought the same…

SHIT TONE
BREATHING IN ALL THE WRONG GOD DAMN PLACES
CRAP INTONATION
SLOPPY FINGERING
STOP SWAYING LIKE A FLOWER IN A FIELD 
THE FLUTE’S BIGGER THAN YOU

But to be fair she is only 8… But she’s so full of her-fucking-self for an 8 year old! OH WAIT LOL SHE’S 7 fuck off. 

Awesome practicing today!

So today I read some stuff out of Michel Debost’s, “The Simple Flute”, to refresh some tips that have become a little lost in the mess of learning so much new music!  I ended up working on sound, and then completely analyzing Chaminade’s Concertino (again) for the Oberlin Institute since that is my main piece, then I spent time basically completely relearning the piece.  It was really refreshing, and I feel super confident with it right now!  I also worked on the Danse de la Chevre for awhile, and I’m starting to feel as if my pieces are actually telling a story, not just sounding like the notes on the page!
