Driving Mr. Tony
Besides composing, Tony tours the world giving master classes for trumpet and brass players. He lives in Germany, but sometimes his travels bring him close enough that I’m able to tag along.
Last year I accompanied Tony on an East coast tour in which he gave master classes at the Juilliard School of Music, Curtis Institute, Manhattan School of Music, Yale University, and the New England Conservatory. This past October I served as his driver for a quick swing through the South, to Memphis State and the Universities of Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia.
