We launched our first Trumpet Challenge on YouTube this week. This project has been on my mind for years. I envision a fun, collaborative community of brass players sharing and learning along the way. The first few challenges will be simple with an element of humor. As we progress, they will become increasingly more difficult with crazy ideas mixed in here and there.
In the spirit of the New Year, I will be working towards my resolutions, which include three new YouTube projects:
I have prioritized these projects so you will see the Trumpet Challenge take form first and Let's Make This develop last. Ironically, I spend most of my time engineering, inventing and making things while playing trumpet only a few minutes a day. My goal is to bring balance to the various aspects of my professional life while sharing my knowledge with you.
I would really appreciate your insight and comments on these projects. Do you have a suggestion on a topic to be covered? A burning question about physics or brass playing? Would you like to see me create a fork and knife with a CNC machine or get the inside scoop on hand carving a wooden frisbee? Post your ideas in the comments below and we'll get started!
