Fantastic ShortSo I just saw Danger Zone, the newest RT Shorts, and i thought it was awesome. Not gonna lie, one of the reasons i love it is the music (As a clarinetist I want to play it.) And Joel getting beat up is awesome too. Great work guys.
Another WeekSo I've been gone for a week dealing little junior high musicians, so I haven't updated for a while. While it was fun and great to see some old friends, it's nice to be in my own bed again. And not sweating my ass off in a dorm. And by ass i mean nipples, cause apparently they don't sweat. Which is really awkward when there are two dry circles on a drenched T-shirt. Go figure.
MeetingSo I've just come back from a meeting with the writer/director and the choreographer of the musical I'm writing,and I'm now super stoked. Except for the fact I'm writing actual music with only two theory courses and a few lessons under my belt. But hey, what could possibly go wrong?
Wow It's been a whileSo It's been like two years since i've written,and a lot has happened. I'm a junior, and i've written a lot more music. Since writing the music from my previous post (which was awesome by the way), I have written for a play production (background music and a full number), a clarinet solo, and a small jazz piece. Now I am arranging pep band tunes and writing all new music for a musical for a theatre student up here. Hopefully I can update this more that I have in previous years.
Composing,,,So I'm asked by my music theory professor to compose or arrange a piece for concert band as a part of my Music Theory Honors Class. The best part is that the piece will be performed in my hometown. The upside is that I know the director (my dad) and the band, so I know who I'm working with. The downside is that, if this sucks, a lot of people who know me will know.
So hopefully up to the challenge. Now if only I had an idea...
Hmm...Is it just me or does Patrick Swayze (may he rest in peace.) look like Neil Pactrick Harris...well the face only.I thought this while I was watching the Dana Carvey collection of SNL episodes on Netflix.
