Vespertine Formations

This is a music/education themed blog ran by The Man Octave (themanoctave.tumblr.com).

I'm a Senior at Ball State University studying Instrumental/General Music Education, with a primary on trumpet. My musical passions primarily lie in worship, jazz, folk, and chamber music. You can also view my online teaching portfolio by clicking the world icon below.

This blog will serve as a place to express my thoughts and share my love of music throughout my endeavors as a musician. Mostly, you'll just see pictures of instruments, but I like to post education related and personal things about music/education as well. My OC will typically be tagged with #personal. Enjoy!

What was truly XtraordinarY about XtraordinarY?
Upside-down tenors? Split mallet runs? Trumpet screamers? Planking basses? Awesome visuals? Guard? Upside down trumpets & DM’s? What really was the best part about XtraordinarY?

To me, it was not any of the above.
To me, it was this.

Mr. Mallets stares into your soul.

I laughed at this much harder than necessary.
