In this episode four great trumpeters: Nadje Noordhuis, Michael Rodriguez, Dave Ballou and Keyon Harrold, along with myself, discuss their experiences and practices of studying with Laurie Frink!

The discussion was recorded at the Festival of New Trumpet Music in NYC on September 25 in front of a live audience. It also includes recordings of Laurie herself playing and talking. This was a great tribute to a great teacher, but also a living demonstration that Laurie’s lessons live on with all of us!

Whether you are a trumpeter or not, there is plenty to learn from in here. It’s a pleasure to share this wisdom on the feed of A Noise From The Deep.
