    Re: any posts?

    Sorry for the lack of posts. Everyone here works so hard and are really busy!

    There is soo much great playing going on here.

    Each person has at least one amazing trait in their playing, whether it be their sound, or the technique, ect. In the end I am totally blown away by the level of musicianship around here, it's a nice environment to be in.

    Not only is it a great playing environment to be in but also everybody is very supportive of each other and helpful, it's great to see!

    The past few evenings have been master classes, given by each of the guest artists.

    Tonight's master class was with Mr. Steve Burns. The guy is really a walking encyclopedia, incredibly smart. Some of his teaching tonight dealt with applying some techniques from Thibault with his own insights included in it. For example, on larger interval slurs he would ask the player to sit more on the bottom note and "spring" off of it to the higher tone. He also encouraged the use of one's "chest" voice and "head" voice.

    Earlier in the day was a workshop on high range and technique with Gabrielle Cassone. Mr. Cassone is absolutely genius at this. With this, he put a heavy emphasis on air and the movement of the air, as well as the vibration of the lips to help remedy any problems. He recommended many books to help as well including the Thompson Buzzing Book, the Stamp book and the Irons lip flexibilities.

    Some of us are in trumpet ensembles which vary in size. I am in a 10 piece trumpet ensemble with Mark Gould as our coach. He has quite a sense of humor, and is great with the musical aspects of pieces.

    I have been extremely pleased with everything this seminar has to offer and hope that it continues into the second week.

    Sorry for the tardy reply.....I'm on my PDA.

    this seminar has reminded me how fun it is to think about truly CREATIVE aspects of music.

    Cassone is probably one of the greatest trumpeters alive.

    Burns masterclass last night was a wonderful example of the incredible scope of musicianship, teaching, mentorship, poise, and presence. That night alone made it worth the seminar!

    But the finest aspect of this week so far has been the interplay of the participants. The scope of students and our artistic choices i absolutely huge.

    Anyone who can drive to this concert should drive up.... hearing Cassone, Burns,and Gould play will change your life!

    TMers,

    Sorry to be so quiet. We've obviously been very busy. Classes, concerts, faculty, and participants have been wonderful. I'll post both programs to date here.

    Best,

    Re: any posts?

    The concert last night was fabulous! It was a night full of different types of music from Mark Gould playing Cafe 1930, to the Kennan Sonata, to a contemporary piece titled "Curiosity".

    It was also great to see people not committed to the seminar come watch us.

    It is really a once in a life time opportunity to see all of Mark Gould, Steve Burns, and Gabrielle Cassone on stage on 1 night.

    TrentAustin played great again in his rendition of Michael Haydn.

    Overall another great night at Chosen Vale!
