My resent trip to Germany teaching the TCE took me to Rhein Neckar and Eberbacher. These two towns are very close to Mannheim. You can read the newspaper reviews from both Masterclasses in either English or German at the reviews page on my website . I had a geat time teaching students who were already on the correct path with TCE training. Their teacher, Wolfgang Brecht had taken lessons with me the year before and understood the technique very well. I was very pleased to find that many of his students had a good working knowledge of the TCE. I also had a great time working with older and professional players who were searching for better embouchure’s. As a matter of fact, some of the professional player have followed up with Skype lessons.
During my time off , Wolfgang took me on tours of Mannheim, Heidelburg and Schwetzingen . As a Baroque trumpet specialist and historically correct player I was fascinated with the culture of the Rococo period. I started to identify with the period and found a deeper connection to the repertoire that I perform.
