Spent my Saturday down at The Record Plant in Hollywood recoding an incredible string quintet, which included Dennis Trembly principal bassist for the LA Philharmonic and Belinda Broughton who has played in the London Symphony and Philharmonic orchestras. She has also played on just about every film score ever, including classics such as The Empire Strikes Back. You can also see in the photo her Husband and and my Tutor, legendary film composer Bruce Broughton. The fact that I get to do this and learn first hand from these masters still hasn’t sunk in yet, I couldn’t be more grateful to be here!
This was not my best conducting, in fact I know I could do a lot better and have done a lot better. this was a first take, and I decided to not take another shot in order to show progress. Things I can point out here is my hands were uneven and I looked lazy with my conducting. I need to have more definition and a bigger range. #conducting #drummajor #band
To my right is Dr. Amy Bebbington. One of the most respected leaders of all things choral in the country, if not the world. And here she was this morning delivering a private conducting workshop for us BYC leaders. Forgive the gobsmacked look on my face. 😂 An eye-opening morning I’ll never forget! So much to learn... #choir #workshop #conducting #byc #youthchoir #worldclass #singing
