Mark and Kristen venture into the world of YouTube Live to record this episode. We talk about New York, NY as being such a hub of saxophone activity from the NY office of D’Addaroo. They end up getting into some deep conversation about being a saxophonist today and relevance. You may be inspired by a few suggestions for performing venues and the overall brilliance of Kristen McKeon. Enjoy!
Ever wonder what to talk about with your instrument repairman or what steps to take when something is a little off? Steven Georges contacted Mark off the challenge to come on the show with this very show idea. Mark of course was glad to take the suggestion and learned quite a few tips and tricks along the way!
Here we go again! Mark is taking a chance on experimenting with a new format by creating a series of solo audio blogs. The point is to both entertain and create a call to action. We talk show numbers and the numerous countries to have downloaded an episode from TMSP. Also, discusses a few things he’s learned along the way. Don’t forget to join Mark for the Super Bowl… Find out details in the episode!
James Barrera from Long Beach State University in Long Beach, California and Orange County School of the Arts breaks out the Henry Lindeman Method and gives a detailed break down of the benefits of using this technique. Hearing about this air and finger coordination and special care for our relaxed movements is encouraging me to revisit some of my own playing and teaching. Enjoy!
Good thing we took a break after part 1 because we completely lost track of time and had a blast talking about saxophone. We might have gotten a little carried away, but you are sure to be both entertained and encouraged. Dr. Henning Schroeder is the baritone saxophonist in the Capitol Quartet and also on faculty at Ohio Northern University.
