Daniel Wilson Presentation and Master Class

Daniel Wilson (BME, 2009) visited campus this past Friday (Spring, 2011) and gave an excellent presentation on life in grad school, breaking into the playing scene in Dallas, starting a studio in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, and his upcoming audition for the United States Air Force Band in Washington, D.C.

I was especially pleased that he commented that his education at Henderson was a great help to him in grad school in trumpet, piano, theory, and music history.  (Daniel’s website)

Craig Ingram (senior, BME) is entering the International Trumpet Guild mock audition contest.  He performed several excerpts for Daniel and received excellent feedback.

I had a blast — it was great to see to see one of our recent graduates back on campus working with one of our students!

Meanwhile, David Laubach was in Fort Smith with four trumpet majors attending a clinic by Byron Stripling.  The trumpet studio had a great Friday!
