Last month, I was interviewed for a wind music podcast called Everything Band, run by composer Mark Connor. We talk covered a lot of different topics, including:
My background as an oboist
The importance of personal connections
Having opportunity as a young musician
Rhythm and young students
The wind ensemble at Hiram College
The value of having community members in the small college band
Staying in touch with your instrument
Teaching a new piece
Talking/commissioning works from composers
Programming new music
The importance of taking your time and having diverse musical experiences.
Check it out here! Many thanks to Mark for inviting me!
