My Main musical training was at the University of Kentucky, and yes, I am an avid UK Basketball fan
Triangle Brass Band
I serve as the Music Director for the Triangle Brass Band (website linked below), a volunteer group patterned in the British brass band tradition. We perform close to eight concerts a year and feature world renowned guest artists such as Philip Smith, Allen Vizzutti, Demondrae Thurman, Steve Sykes, Steven Mead and Douglas Yeo. Here is a picture from our December 2010 collaboration with the North Carolina Master Chorale.
Triangle Youth Brass Band
I also oversee the Youth Band Program for the Triangle Brass organization. This consists of two bands, the TYBB, which I conduct, and the TYBE. Combined, the youth bands have won 10 North American Brass Band Association Youth Division and Youth Open Division Championships, and has performed with renowned soloists such as Jens Lindemann, Scott Hartman, Marty Erickson, Vince DiMartino, Terry Everson, Douglas Yeo and composer Philip Sparke.
During the late sumer and fall, I teach several high school marching bands around the state of North Carolina. I focus mainly on basic fundamental brass playing skills, and refining the musical product. I use a brass training program I call Brass Concepts, which teaches basic understanding of fundamental brass playing as an individual, and as an ensemble.
