EDIT: Due to overwhelming popularity, this clinic will now meet weekly. The next session on Wednesday, September 28 at 9:30pm will focus on ear training, breathing, embouchure, and tone clarity. The conversation has been booming– join us on Discord now, connect with other brass players, and develop the tools to elevate your brass performance (particularly lead playing) to the next level.
Ready to elevate your brass performance skills? Cabs trumpet player and visual staff member Mark Fisher is ready to help! Mark is hosting a FREE weekly brass clinic series to help high brass players increase their range, particularly to prepare for the rigors of lead trumpet performance in drum corps.
Mark writes, “Even if you do not play trumpet, the idea is to encourage trumpet players in the bands you are playing with/teaching this fall to stop in, pick up some tips and hopefully get engaged enough to want to march a season with the Caballeros.”
Online conversations have already started on the clinic Discord! Join now and sign in for the next session on Wednesday, September 28 at 9:30 pm. Silencing devices are encouraged due to the late-night, indoor nature of these meetings.
