Hi all!

I'm proud to announce that I will be joining the faculty at the Longy School of Music this upcoming fall. In somewhat of a unique approach to conservatory training, I will be focusing on teaching chamber and solo music, as well as focusing on the business of being a 21st century musician, working on topics such as freelancing, publicity, programming, commissioning, and the art of solo and chamber performance.

I would love to reach out to any students or performers interested in contemporary music, or who are interested in any sort of off the wall approach to finding and creating an individual sound. Of course the doors are always open to classical and orchestra focused performers as well - I have a strong belief that trombonists should have a good refined sound as a base, knowledge of history and styles, and open ears to ALL music!

Thanks!

That's great, Will! I hope we can find some time to get together when you come to Cambridge.

Does Longy have much synergy with Bard?  I don't really understand how you guys fit together?

Thanks Gabe! We'll definitely find time, and I'll also be there this summer as part of Longy's Divergent series, which is a week long festival for any instrument to stay unique chamber chamber music. If you have any students looking for a summer workshop let me know!

Hey Steven! From what I've been able to tell so far (in that I haven't even started yet,) Bard and Longy are more co-partners in branding, and there's not much commuting between campuses yet. Maybe they'll work that into future plans though, but I'm not privy to those meetings yet!

Since Bard doesn't do that much with Contemporary Music, they probably can benefit from the connection with Longy.
