Hey everyone - back with another video of my high school student! This time he is tearing apart "Impressions" by John Coltrane. We go pretty far out on this one - let me know what you think!!
Thanks so much! He hates the contrived sound of a lot of younger musicians, and sometimes he just loves to let go and just scream. I love it!!Great playing as before. I really liked the voice I hear coming out 1:55 - 2:10. The kid isn't afraid to reach. We need more like him.
Thanks so much! I've had a blast teaching him since 5th grade!Great ideas, solid techinique, and the confidence to go for it...impressive and rare at any age, but both humbling and inspiring to hear stuff from young cats like this! I think the most creative players struggle the most in finding a teacher and mentor who knows how to get them what they need and keep it interesting. Nice work, Dave! I bet you get about as much out of your lessons with him as he does 😎
Thank you! I'm lucky to teach a lot of great kids and right now he's on top.We all get one amazing student if we are lucky. I had a kid who got a full ride to manhattan school of music. Your guy sounds amazing and he is very very creative which is exactly what he'll need to stick out if he decides to dive into the jazz scene. Send him to New York,, Dave. He sounds great. I'm sure you are proud K
That's totally fine! Suuuuuuper dark sound.No offense I 'like his tone best??? K
Just a Mark VI and a Ted Klum Acoustimax for himI'll have to search out his mouthpiece and set up!!!! K ))))
