Today’s #fundamentalfridays idea was inspired by a tendency that I find myself doing at times, which is playing my staccatos too short. I try to create an illusion of staccato rather than creating a dry, shirt and seemingly tone-less note length. I practice scales and experiment around with note lengths until I find the one I like best. Then I practice it in a scale and then apply it to a piece I’m working on.
What are you practicing today??

We’ve got another instrument day coming up on Jan. 30th this time with our friends over at daCarbo! If you’ve ever been interested/curious about these instruments make sure to mark your calendars and swing by!
As for this particular post we’re showcasing the daCarbo Toni Maier model—an extremely responsive #trumpet showcasing that trademark daCarbo carbon fiber off with its large bell! For more info check our bio or contact/visit us directly.
Fun fact: this is the conductor cam! We broadcast a live feed of the conductor to TV monitors in the pit, above the audience, and in several locations backstage (percussion room, stage management call desk, solo sax booth, etc.) so everyone knows what’s going on during the show!
Family Friday! Here are some pictures of the people I love dearly!
1 - Family picture taken at “moon rock”, a clearing of rocks covered in moss in the nature preserve behind our house.
2-3 - Taken at the museum of science and industry in Chicago.
4 - From @kathleenbcostello and my wedding at a courthouse in Bessemer, Alabama. June 27th, 2018!
5 - From our “Meastros Ball” gala with the @alsymphonyorch at the beginning of the this season.
6 - My favorite picture of our fat but friendly cat, Walter
