"Music Conducting Tips; Stop Wasting Time & Start Playing More Music"
Do you despise wasting time? I do too. So with my 'inside connections ' I convinced Carl that he should pry some of his hard won music teaching wisdom out of his brain and put it down for the rest of us to benefit from. Not only that but I convinced him he should do it for free. (I LOVE FREE!)
Like you I have been out in the trenches trying to get good rehearsals out of less than enthusiastic music program participants. Teaching conditions,music budgets and materials were often subterranean. How about attempting to balance work,music teaching, and having a good life? Yep, like you I've been handling that one for a while too.
Carl Hammond's credits include conducting bands and orchestras, teaching music, performing on piano & trombone, musical composing, and arranging music on a worldwide stage. And he's done it for over 40 years, so there are definitely some things he can share that could make life better for the rest of the band music, jazz music, chamber music and music teaching populations.
