This is really only available to folks in the Chicago area. Sorry.
I want our Chicago area members to be aware of this. I've made this offer before, but I think I need to bring it up once in a while.
I am willing to drive to any school in the Greater Chicago area (50 mile redius of the Congress and Michigan) and do essentially the same lecture/demo/clinic that I did at the West Chester University Trumpet Festival - FREE OF CHARGE! I can do this because I will be paid by my school. I would be taking a pro-leave day (something I am allowed to do on a limited basis). Also, I am an endorsing artist of the New York Trumpet Compnay. The only stipulation is that this occurs during the school day. For evening performances, my standard rates must apply. Also, I would want to be able to sell CD's there. Oh yeah, I do require a free lunch. The school cafeteria is fine (I eat light).
So, as the school year winds down a bit, if you are a Chicago area band director and need an easy lesson plan, let me come talk shop to your studetns. Believe me, I can bring all horns into the discussion.
PM me, if you're interested.
Thanks for reading!
