tenet (ten' it), noun: a principle, doctrine, or belief held as truth

Welcome to my blog! Here I will share some of my thoughts on horn playing and teaching, which I think about a lot, and maybe some other things, too. Since my job (which thankfully, allows me to do a lot of playing and teaching) keeps me very busy, as does my wonderful family, I may not write frequently. My goal will be quality, not quantity!

Please share your comments.

Saint-Saens' Morceau de Concert, Op. 94

I’ve been involved with a project for the past three years that has finally come to fruition!  My colleague at WCU, pianist Andrew Adams, and I have created a critically revised performing edition of Camille Saint-SaĆ«ns’ Morceau de Concert, Op. 94.  This has recently been published by Faust Music.

SMBQ Jamaica Tour 2012

     The SMBQ travelled to Jamaica May 13-20, and we played a total of 6 concerts in Kingston and Montego Bay, mostly at all-girls schools.  We played for some huge audiences (1500+), and they were very enthusiastic!  For the majority of these girls, this was the first time they had ever heard a brass quintet live, or any brass instrument, for that matter.
