This week I will be a guest artist at the Milnarik Music Initiative Tuba Euphonium Academy, which is held at Nichols College, in Dudley, MA. Celebrating their eleventh year, the MMI Tuba Euphonium Academy focuses on individual learning and accessibility to the staff and guest artists. The other guest artists this year are Roland Froscher from Switzerland and Donald Palmire from Washington D.C.
I am really looking forward to working with all of the students and artists and especially getting to spend some time with my old friend and former student Mike Milnarik, who is the founder and director of the academy.
On Wednesday, July 8th, I will be giving a masterclass, presenting a clinic entitled “Your Musical Voyage” and playing a solo recital featuring works from my recent recording. Academies like this are great ways for musicians to expand their horizons and for staff and artists to continue to pass on the legacy of music we received from our own teachers.
