With 2021 behind us, my musical life has returned to near full swing, although with some shifts in focus. Although live concerts are making their return (take a peek at my updated Appearances page!), online teaching, remote recording, and solitary composing still fill most of my days. Here are a few projects that I'm excited about.
Last January, I launched my Transcription Of the Month Club (TOMClub) especially for string players. Subscribers have access to monthly transcriptions of great jazz performances, plus demonstration videos, backing tracks, and etudes. Check it out here:
In May, my International Space Orchestra and I contributed to a high-profile Amazon Prime Day Show (long form music video) featuring hip hop star, Kid Cudi. The video is no longer available but you can click here to see a short documentary about the ISO's participation in the project.
In October, I had the opportunity to score my first documentary. The film is called "Letters From Brno" and tells the story of an American family who uncover their lost holocaust history through a suitcase of letters. It debuted at the Brno Film Festival, where it won the award for Best Feature Documentary! The entire filmmaking team is very proud.
In addition, I'm pleased to report that my first instructional videos have now been released on DC Music School — 2 volumes of lessons, tips, solos and transcriptions to help you wile away the lonely quarantined hours! Find those products here. -ep
