Jazz & R&R Horns session 14

Happy New Year, Here's to a fun and musical 2014. I hope you made it into the new year without too may scratches. This week we finally get into writing out our individual parts for your horn players. In this tutorial I talk about concert pitch and how to transpose for your trumpet and tenor sax and briefly cover alto and baritone sax. In the next tutorial we'll get into dynamic markings, articulations, and how to layout an individual part for your players.

Today, as I'm finally getting this post out it was Martin Luther King's birthday on Monday.  I love hearing his "I had a Dream" and "To the Mountain Top" speeches.  He was so musical in his delivery and I always get  the goose bumps when hearing him.

If you have any questions or feed-back I would love to hear from you.
