Happy Hallows friends!
This year is coming to a close very quickly!Things have been going very well for me, my students, and many of my projects. If you didn't know, I now teach regularly at a few different sites. Since July I have been teaching at Legato Music School in Cupertino. The students here are great and it has been very fun. I am accepting students at this location now of all ages.
The band program at St. Leo's of San Jose is now if full swing. The program has 12 students in trumpet, trombone, saxophone, clarinet, and flute. They are doing wonderfully and I look forward to our spring concert!
Very recently I began teaching at Monticello private school in Sana Clara. I am now teaching beginning trumpet and band lessons here. Mrs. Natalie Haworth-Liu directs this program and she had an excellent group of kids who are very fun to work with.
On a personal basis, I have successfully completed a suite if music dedicated to baseball that will be premiered Nov. 6th at San Jose State University at 7:30pm. Please look for music excerpts in the coming weeks.
I am also in the process of writing a lot of new music. The goal was to expand my skills but more importantly, to expand my outreach of my company. Look for a new section to G.O. Music Co. with score excerpts and full-arrangements for purchase and download. I will be applying for the ASCAP Young Jazz Composers Competition as well as the Downbeat Student Awards this year in hopes of a nomination to cap the year off.
Soon, a new division will open on this website. I have reinvested my efforts to continue my audio engineering skills and G.O. Recording Co. will launch in the coming weeks. This division will specialize in live recording, mixing, mastering, and production of student music and local bands in the San Jose area. Be in the lookout for a new logo and information on pricing as well as samples of my work. Contact me through the website if you are interested in having me record your project.
Many thanks to all of my friends and family, students, and supporters. I am starting to see some fruits of my hard labor and I am looking forward to the coming year's worth of work, music, and finished projects.
