Just because I’m a music education major does not mean that I am a lousy musician. It is really frustrating when people think that because I try so hard to be the best performer I can be in addition to the best teacher I can be. I am very aware of our demanding and busy degree program, but my colleagues that put their musicianship on the back burner gives all of us a bad reputation and it is really irritating.
I AGREE WITH THIS WHOLE-HEARTEDLY
Frank Ticheli’s Sanctuary for Concert Band is really just an arrangement of 4:33 for third trumpet.
Not actually true but that’s what it felt like today in rehearsal.
I’m like 90% sure that Simple Gifts from Copland’s Appalachian Spring and All Creatures of Our God and King are the same tune…
Maybe I’m nuts
Maybe I’m the last person to know this
But this has just blown my mind
