Rehearsal Notes Benjamin Britten

Hymn to St. CeciliaRehearsal 18 Something that is confusing is the constant rhythm expressed in the bass line. I do not hear or feel that consistency to set up the other lines above that quarter note rhythm. As an instrumentalist

Messiah and Jesus Christ Superstar

In the summer of 1741 Handel, depressed and in debt, began setting Charles Jennens’ Biblical libretto to music at a breakneck speed. In just 24 days, Messiah was complete (August 22 – September 14)
Jesus Christ Superstar, 1970’s
Pulling all this together, the performing arts is a profession just like any other profession. Do not take it for granted and just expect it to be there without recompense.

Life and Times in Arkansas and the Midwest

I have thought long and hard about this segment and how to present it. Let’s just get down to business about the gig artist and teacher affiliated with Arkansas Repertory Theatre, Arkansas Arts Commission and the Mid America Arts Alliance. On my personal time line, I was based out of Little Rock, Arkansas in the early to mid 1980’s, leaving there in 1985 for the green pastures of Tennessee, New York and Chicago. During that time frame in Arkansas, I developed as a true professional, performing with the theatre company and any other “gigs” that I was called for. What a wonderful life living in the Quapaw Quarter in Little Rock at the time. I did 3 different musicals with Arkansas Rep during that time frame, “Ain’t Misbehavin” with the cast pulled from Memphis, Tennessee and Playhouse on the Square, “Sing For Your Supper” which we toured for a year throughout the Midwest into Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and the eastern part of Texas and “Good Woman Of Szechzuan” , a new musical written by Michael Rice in the Arkansas Arts Center, McArthur Park, Little Rock, Arkansas.

Kinesiology of the Clarinet

Kinesiology as it relates to the clarinet involves every aspect of practice and performance. By definition kinesiology is the science dealing with the interrelationship of the physiological processes and anatomy of the human body with respect to movement. Movement of the fingers in relation to the fingers and the key’s on the clarinet involves constant attention to the height of the fingers in relation to the keys and the flexibility needed to make the connections with a sense of interconnectedness.
