When James was just getting started as a podcaster, he recorded one of his favorite episodes of Trumpet Dynamics.
Manny Laureano, Gerard Schwarz, and Ron Romm shared their memories taking lessons with Vacchiano.
Brian Shook, the author of a biography of William Vacchiano titled, "
Last Stop, Carnegie Hall"
, also shared some fascinating and insightful stories.
James put countless hours into this episode and loved every moment. He said, "
Great players I idolized reminiscing about their experiences with someone they idolized and adored. I was brand new as a podcaster and found myself right in the middle of this amazing experience. It was a sign I was doing the right thing."
I just finished listening to it and now I'm bursting with ideas on how to practice, how to teach and how to interact with the other trumpet players in my section.
It was a joy to listen to!
