My Practice and Study 2012
I’ve started my studies and practicing this year with some focus on David Bilger, who is Principal with the Philadelphia Orchestra, He is a featured artist on Play With A Pro and for a very reasonable cost you can download what is in effect a personal lesson with him on a whole range of trumpet related topics. Mr Bilger - apart from sounding fabulous - teaches the lessons with a clear structure that is simple to follow - for me that’s good.
Still working away on Javier Gonzales lead pipe playing routines, which I find most beneficial - will record my progress to video soon.
There is a video trailer of James Morrison’s new big band album that shows clips of him recording the music on all the brass, saxophones, piano, guitar and double bass - it’s a Schagerl sponsored CD. I really don’t know anyone else who exhibits this virtuosity and versatility?
