Trumpet Masterclass with Don Tison

Wingate band director Dr. Price and Monroe Middle School band director Mr. Retzlaff recenlty hosted a trumpet masterclass given by Don Tison, former principal trumpet of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.

Our very own Kyle Johnson participated in the master class.  Kyle performed music that he is preparing for an upcoming audition and received coaching from Mr. Tyson on various aspects of his playing.  It's rare that high school musicians have the opportunity to perform for professional musicians and it takes a great deal of courage.  

We are so proud of Kyle for accepting the challenge of performing in the master class and wish him luck in his upcoming auditions!
