Having Rich Szabo as a trumpet clinician or guest artist
at your school is a rewarding and unforgettable experience for your band
You can have Rich Szabo for the day. As a guest
soloist/clinician with your school jazz ensemble, or concert band, he will give a clinic in
the morning, then rehearse with your band during the day, and perform with
them at your evening concert. The arrangements that he plays will be sent
to you in advance, and are yours to keep.
You can also have Rich Szabo and his Jazz Orchestra
at your school. Rich and the band are a perfect fundraising vehicle
for your band program. Your students will have the time of their lives
promoting a concert and clinic with the Rich Szabo Orchestra.
During the Clinic the band will rehearse a new piece
of music that YOUR band chooses. This way the students get a
chance to see the process that a professional band goes through rehearsing
a new piece of music.
Some of the topics covered during a clinic are:
Power, Range & Endurance
Playing in a Big Band
The role of the lead player
How the sections in the band work
Developing a sound
Getting Out Of Your Own Way
Phrasing and interpretation
Arranging and Composition
Students are encouraged to participate by asking questions,
answering questions, and sometimes even playing. Active participation
is not mandatory, however, a student will get more out of the clinic by taking
an active role.
