Great show last night by Mingo Fishtrap

Last night Michele and I went out to hear the band Mingo Fishtrap. What a great band to hear live. They are funky, soulful and just down right fun. 

It was a special treat to talk to Dan Bechdolt the tenor plkayer with the band. He is a nice guy and lots of fun to listen to. Dan is playing on a new FJIII Macsax mouthpiece designed by Eric Falcon. He loves it and sounded great. What, you thought we wern't going to talk about that? It's a small world and Dan had run into my friend Doug Moffit earlier in the week. Get out to hear Mingo Fishtrap if you get a chance.

         Here's to you Dan, great job. What a fun night. Travel safe.

Industry Veteran Ricky Schultz says...

"The measure of a musician is their body of work.  It's what seperates the men from the boys.​

Credentials --- the company you keep. It takes time, opportunity, and in the end-real talent do such a thing. You have to put in many thousands of hours--you can't fake the funk.

What makes a body of work? Twenty years with both The Temptations and The Four Tops. Like a rock.

Having worked with a list of artists so deep, (Google it) from so many genres, that suddenly it hits you--TIM GORDON is one of those players--one of the clutch, go to saxophonists in contemporary music.

Dedicated to his art, Tim is a connoisseur-level musician. His dedication is apparent when you hear his sound. And suddenly it hits you again--you've probably heard him before, maybe even seen him along your musical journey.

SOULFUL, hip-smart, and technically brilliant. What else could you ask of a saxophone player?

Encyclopedic range, comfort with any kind of music, and besides all that? He's a real nice guy.


You're in for a real treat here. Tim Gordon has finally made a record of his own.

Enjoy,
Ricky Schultz

Using Synchronous Formative Feedback to Facilitate Student Growth

Music Educators Journal, Volume 107, Issue 2, Page 51-57, December 2020. <br/>Music educators regularly provide students with real-time formative feedback in the classroom, but there are frequent opportunities to improve its utility and effectiveness. This article presents a model for examining synchronous formative feedback (SFF), offering music teachers tools to explore and enhance the feedback they share with students. In considering dimensions such as timing, specificity, and valence, music teachers can examine their own practice to refine SFF, improve efficiency, and enrich student learning.
