3  Teaching & Learning / Schools, Colleges and Conservatories / Help Wanted: Topic for Scholarship Essay on: Dec 07, 2017, 02:45PM
Hello trombone enthusiasts !

I'm going to write a 1,000 word essay in the hopes of winning scholarship money. The topic is Ethics. It's a good opportunity for not too many words !
It's due January 20th

I'm looking for some hot topic recommendations !

here are some instructions:
"Submit a 1,000-word maximum essay, double-spaced excluding bibliography.
The essay will highlight what the applicant believes to be the epitome of ethical behavior in his or her focus of study or field of business.

Evaluation will be based on the following criteria:
              1. Connection to Applicantís Field of Study
              2. Discussion of an Ethical Behavior Standard
              3. Intellectual Debate or Discussion
              4. Mechanics
              5. Thesis or position
The ethics competition was created to promote intellectual debate and discussion on ethics as related to studentsí areas of study at UNT, their field of vocation or their avocation. The goal is to stimulate the applicants to new heights of reasoning and self-discipline. The ultimate result will be a higher level of ethical understanding in oneís area of study and daily life. It is the hope of the donors that students will recognize and better comprehend the need for a higher understanding of ethics in their personal and professional lives."

thank you for your assistance !

I usually put my horn on my stand if not playing

BUT earlier this year was at a gig and a PA fell over and knocked my Yammie over. My mpc was stuck but my tech took care of that and got a few dents out. (One small one from the fall)
Gave me $50 just in case so grateful for that
Shouldíve seen the tenor sax....got MESSED UP

Lesson learned....if horn isnít in your hand, itís in the case

Awesome !

6  Teaching & Learning / History of the Trombone / Re: questions about music and religion on: Nov 07, 2017, 06:38AM
What religious elements do you think have been marginalized?

Itís a question for a essay and Iím looking for insight !

About the lack of religious aspects over other narratives in most discussion of letís say Mozart, Mahler, Beethoven, Debussy, Ravel, even popular music, modernism, jazz etc

Music after 1750
Thanks for the insight !
7  Teaching & Learning / History of the Trombone / questions about music and religion on: Nov 06, 2017, 02:05PM
1) Why has religious music been marginalized in most examinations of music history?

2) Should we pay more attention to the historical and social importance of religion and music after
1750? If so, how? If not, justify the continuance of its marginal position.
8  Teaching & Learning / Pedagogy / Re: What is tone? on: Nov 04, 2017, 10:09PM
I think Steve norell said in some masterclass ďinstant presenceĒ

He may have been talking about something else but thatís something else to think about

He referenced a clarinet player that had that quality

He gave an analogy of turning on a water faucet and ďboomĒ instant water flow. Instant tone

Something to strive for !
9  Practice Break / Chit-Chat / Re: Worst Halloween treats? on: Nov 02, 2017, 05:07AM
No no. Lots of people love black liquorice. It's good! I think it will always be around as a sort of specialty treat.

I donít thinks kids today exclaim with delight when they see black liqourice in their Halloween pumpkin container.

Their grandkids, probably even less so !

Is all Iím saying.

But theyíll still be drinking Jaegermeister !
10  Practice Break / Chit-Chat / Re: Worst Halloween treats? on: Nov 01, 2017, 09:48PM
I predict black liqourice wont be around much if at all in 50 yrs
11  Teaching & Learning / Practice Room / Re: Double-tongue and spit on: Oct 17, 2017, 07:01PM
I would echo this. I was doing a somewhat aggressive Arban's routine in grad school that lasted a few years. At the very beginning I had the same issue as noted in the OP. Went away after some time, and I think due to it becoming more practiced and consistent. OP tell your friend to be patient.

Thanks !

I copied and pasted Doug's post !
12  Teaching & Learning / Practice Room / Double-tongue and spit on: Oct 10, 2017, 11:28AM
Asking for a friend:

"So Iím working on double tonguing and Iím doing some of the exercises out of Arbans. My only problem is Iím getting a **** ton of spit building up in my oral cavity. Thoughts and tips guys?"
13  Creation and Performance / Performance / Re: Recital themes and repertoire on: Oct 09, 2017, 12:56PM
one teacher I had said a recital can include:

an early piece like Bach or Telemann
a "meat and potatoes" like Creston or Ewazen
lyrical piece(s) like Rachmaninoff songs can be gorgeous
fun piece like Trombone Institute of Technology

maybe I'm missing one of the categories  :/

naturally, this isn't set in stone
14  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Instruments / Re: Thein tenor setup on: Oct 03, 2017, 09:01PM
I agree with this as well. So few players play Thein trombones here that I'l also be curious as to how you "fit in" with a section.

I play my Thein with no problems (!) in:

Wind Ensemble
Trombone Trio
Brass Quintet
Big Band (4th bone)
Bone Choir

It plays good soft and no problems gettingl loud.
Dark, bright, short, broad, no problem !
Still working on my own issues, though Yeah, RIGHT.
15  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Instruments / Re: Thein tenor setup on: Oct 03, 2017, 08:56PM
Yes my friend will professionally video record, two separate cameras ! Maybe break it up and put on the YouTube
16  Horns, Gear, and Equipment / Instruments / Re: Thein tenor setup on: Oct 03, 2017, 03:45PM

Ewazen - Sonata

17  Creation and Performance / Performance / Re: Please a recommendation for Trio on: Sep 16, 2017, 02:34PM
Nice, good, and cool....you want it all.  All kidding aside, there are quite a few options. 

Lynn, Bryan- Bachy Things, Steak and Kidney Supper, and Ba De Do Dup
Moulert, Raymond- Suite pour trois trombone ŗ coulisse (1939)
Geminiani, Francisco-Concerto Grosso from Sonata, Op. 5, No. 3 (c. 1732) (arr. Morris)
Hidas, Frigyes- Alteba Trio, Interludio
LaFosse- Suite Impromptu

I don't think any of these are going to less than 10 minutes.

You could play Britten's Fanfare for St. Edmundsbury (1959).  This is for 3 trumpets, but you can transpose for trombone.  It works well.

I love trios.  I really feel it an overlooked part of the literature, and in my mind more rewarding to play. 

Haha there supposed to be an "or" in there somewhere

I'll check and see if the library has those

18  Creation and Performance / Performance / Re: Please a recommendation for Trio on: Sep 16, 2017, 11:12AM
Trombone trio !
19  Creation and Performance / Performance / Please a recommendation for Trio on: Sep 16, 2017, 04:20AM
Please a recommendation for a nice/good/cool Trio

Time limit less than 10 minutes  Idea!
20  Creation and Performance / Music, Concerts and Recordings / Re: Wanted: Short brass quintet recommendation on: Sep 16, 2017, 04:18AM
In reply, we will play Ewald 1 for our first performance and the mvt II of Ewazen Frostfire for the second

And possibly for my recital  Good!
