Musical Director

A music director may be the director of an orchestra, the director of music for a film, the director of music at a radio station, the head of the music department in a school, the co-ordinator of the musical ensembles in a university or college (but not usually the head of the academic music department), the head bandmaster of a military band, the head organist and choirmaster of a church, or an Organist and Master of the Choristers (a title given to a Director of Music at a Cathedral, particularly in England).

"I’m the father of 2 boys. My eldest is 14 and my youngest is 8. They’ve never set foot on a regular school before. Because my wife and I have taught them ourselves at home. Crazy, I know. Difficult? You bet. But it’s been a wonderful adventure and the results have been amazing. Like what? Here’s a list from the top of my head… · Our relationship with our children is deep and strong. The time we spend together has paid off handsomely. · We feel that we’re able to pass onto them our values and our faith in a much more effective way. · Our kids have a love for learning. For them, learning is fun. They love reading and art and play and imagination. · They have time to pursue their passions and develop them. My youngest son, 8, is a wonderful singer and is taking voice lessons. He also paints beautiful paintings. My eldest, 14, is a musician, a musical director, a columnist writer, photo editor, website developer, and many more… · They’ve got a “real-life” education that’s ...

Doc Severinsen – The Very Best Of Doc Severinsen – Doc Severinsen might be one of the most underrated band leaders in all of jazzdom.  You never hear his name mentioned with the greats, but think about it- the man was Johnny Carson’s Musical Director for decades.  I snagged this album off itunes, and was delighted to hear him do more than just the theme from “The Tonight Show” (though, yes, of course, that song is on the album).  His arrangements run the gamut from smoky, Cotton Club jazz (check out “Georgia On My Mind”, and “Stardust”), to light, dreamy modern jazz (“City Lights”, “Take The A Train”).  There’s sleepy genius in “Sicilliano”, and a melancholy after-hours feel to “I Can’t Get Started” (with Tony Bennett, the only vocal track on the album).  The only constant throughout is Severinsen’s signature trumpet, bright and sharp, yet somehow warm and luxurious.  Listen to “Begin The Beguine” or “I’m Getting Sentimental Over You”.  I could thro ...

Our orchestra and soloists are of a very high standard and I am very excited to be able to direct these works in Dubai" Dubai audiences will have the chance to hear these marvellous works on Friday 15th March at the H Hotel Dubai at 8pm. . ...

Stage and Theatre Review By Charles Foster Carmichael “Aida” An age-old Egyptian tragic tale that’s been told since the 1700s and made into operas and plays got the Broadway treatment by the renowned team of Sir Elton John and Tim Rice in 2000 and garnished an impressive five Tony Awards, is now on stage at the High Street Arts Center in Moorpark. With a large production team, many straight from the Conejo Players camp, Director Shawn W. Lanz has assembled an impressive cast of singers and dancers to bring this timeless tale to life, adding a few quirky additions for flavor.

Bassist, Writer, Composer, Producer, Musician, Musical Director, and Philosopher.   Rio, a creative and versatile bassist, has been holding the groove down for many years.   Rio was born in St. Louis, Missouri. The youngest of four growing up in the 70’s funk era, he was influenced by music at an early age. Rio’s home was typically filled with music, as his mother was a singer for the church choir and a brother that played guitar. Rio picked up on the correlation between music and the mood it creates, long before picking up an instrument, He also saw it as a viable vehicle for self-expression that would counter his shyness. He began following various artist/Bands such as Sly & the Family Stone, Parliament/Funkadelic, Earth, Wind, and Fire. He was initially drawn to the drums, which he played in his elementary school band as well as the trumpet.

A letter from Ted Chamberlain, our new Musical Director: Good Harmony, Gentlemen!! I want to take this opportunity to briefly introduce myself to you and if you haven't been coming around lately, to invite you to come join us and help us fill the risers! My name is Ted Chamberlain - some of you may know me from when I first started singing with the SeaChordsmen as a teenager back in about 1980! Or maybe our paths have crossed at other times over the years. Well, Barbershop had a very influential roll in my life!!! Although I had a strong singing and musical upbringing before finding barbershop, there was something about the style of music and ringing chords that immediately drew me in. And I must tell you that I was litterally blown away when I first heard the SeaChordsmen in that initial rehearsal I attended more than 30 years ago. I WAS HOOKED!! This love of Barbershop litterally guided my career choice (Vocal Music Educator - and now Private Voice instructor as well). I have been a lover of quartetting ...

2012!! Wow what a year. Got married, gained a 5 year step-daughter, turned 40, moved house about 6 times, toured with two world class artists…. After 11 months of hard work has sadly come to an end. Thanks to everyone who supported and invited me into their lives. For all your kind words, gifts, photos and general nice stuff. A big thumbs up to the wonderful amazing people in Texas - Debby Sutton and her inspiring students at PGHS Texarkarna. I had a truly inspiring 10 days in Texas. Big respect to the musicians from New York, Canada, Texas & the UK who joined us on our various tours and projects. Huge thanks and gratitude to Ramin Karimloo for hiring me in as his Guitarist & Musical Director, trusting me to put bands together & share my experience with musicians all over the UK, US & CN. It was a huge learning curve - challenging emotionally and musically but I hope the future brings more of the same. Good luck with Sheytoons and may your journey continue. As always love & respect to Darren Hayes for t ...
Sensational evening last night. The Blue Bishops with a little help from The Chairs really rocked it. Terrific audience (over a hundred) had a great time and gave us some excellent feedback. We had our usual smattering of musos including Andy Renton from 3AM who very kindly sat in drums with The Chairs, whose drummer left them in the lurch at short notice, on a couple of numbers. Thanks also to Don Craine from The Downliners Sect for his support since we started out on this journey. He is always up for doing a number with any band that asks him and does it with good grace and class. It was an honour to welcome Martin Turner (Wishbone Ash), *** Avery (Kinks), Denny (The Crazy World of Arthur Brown), Bob Hokum (Bob Hokum Band and Musical Director of The Ealing Festival), David and Jack Sinclair (DS3), Paul Long (The Riotous Brothers and BBC Radio) and Tim Renton with his lovely wife Sandy. It was very gratifying to receive so many great comments and words of encouragement from these seasoned veterans and e ...

Another wonderful write-up for THE FREE RESIDENCY from CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE: Jonathan Whitton, a Bistro & MAC Award Winner, and well known for his starring role in several productions of HEDWIG & THE ANGRY INCH, is not just a talented vocalist and actor: he is a cabaret performer out there on the leading edge of the world of cabaret. Jonathan is not content to simply sing a bunch of songs interspersed with self-indulgent patter. He throws his own personality in each song he presents. He sings from the heart, and freely add his own stamp and personal feelings to his songs - while remaining true to the original lyric and intentions of the songwriter, often mining the lyrics to expose every gem and golden vein. For this show, Jonathan was joined by experimental musician and NYU Musical Theatre Writing Program Graduate Aaron Jones as Musical Director. Together they presented what they called "re-imagined takes on songs from an eclectic group of songwriters" like Amos Lee, Kate McGarrigle, James Shelton, an ...

Monday Thoughts on Christmas: We all are familiar with the song Jingle Bells. Some history on the song. The Unitarian Universalist Church of Savannah, Georgia was known as the Jingle Bells Church. It was there in 1857, while serving as the church's musical director and organist, James Pierpoint finally copyrighted One Horse Open Sleigh, the Christmas carol known as Jingle Bells, which he had composed in Medford, Masschusetts, at least seven years earlier. You can imagine Pierpont sitting at the organ playing this song for the congregants every Christmas Eve. The man had a complicated life. He moved to the South and fought for the Confederacy, while his brother, John served as a Union Army chaplian. He died impoverished though his nephew was a great financial titan, J. Pierpont Morgan, said to have more money than the U.S. Treasury. Something to think about how long ago this song was written and is still being sung even today.

ALBUM OUT TODAY Notes On The Jazz Age By Richard Williams Dear doomed F. Scott Fitzgerald found a phrase to describe the sounds that accompanied the party scenes in The Great Gatsby, his most celebrated novel. He called it "yellow cocktail music", and if you have an ounce of music in your soul then you will know exactly what he meant. And here it is, that very thing, emerging from an unexpected source to evoke the charm of a vanished but still compelling time. Trumpets shout, trombones bray, a bass saxophone harrumphs and a banjo *** out a steady rhythm punctuated by the ticking of woodblocks and the splash of a Chinese cymbal. Yet this is not the fictional bandleader Vladimir Tostoff's "Jazz History of the World", a lavish composition invented by Fitzgerald as the soundtrack to Jay Gatsby's lavish parties. These songs were written by Bryan Ferry fifty and more years later, initially part of the repertoire of Roxy Music but now taking a leap back in time in order to re-emerge as if they belonged to the .. ...

What a night!! Thank you so much to the cast and crew of Grease, my beautiful director Roberta Weisg, my extremely talented musical director Patrick Weis, and everyone else in between! Thank you for letting me be a part of such an incredible show, I've honestly never had that much fun from start to finish of a production before. I will truly miss every one of you, and as cheesy and cliche as it is, we really have become a tight knit family! Philip Stark, extra thanks to you. Your patience, love, support and sense of humor has been my rock, thank you for sharing this with me! Xoxo
Mass today was so uplifting! Our parish is Christ the King and today was the feast day of Christ the King. We have a great musical director and he did a fantastic job. Brass and strings accompanied the choir and the bell choir played before and after Mass. The tintinnabulation (ok, I'm an English teacher and love that word) of those bells just filled the church. Now that the election is over, I could really enjoy and listen to Father's homily. It was a very moving service.
- They don't make'em like they used too - Hand colored pencil work, ( before computers and how Hollywood, used to do things.) Thank you Jon Michael Johnson, anything done right once, always done right forever. This will forever be a very special work and shall stand the test of time . . .

I think a musical director should be able to tell you all the harmonies, time, feels, etc. that the band will be dealing with. There are a lot of people that can tell you that something doesn't sound right, but that doesn't qualify in my estimation. I think an md that can read and write and knows some arranging techniques is infinitely more valuable than one that does not. Put some Fred on that James.
Here is some funny stuff but it's long: musician fines: If there are the proverbial "golden rules" are there also one's made of lead? But of course, we have it all here yes? The following "leaden rules" came over the "wire" a few years ago from Paul Asbell, a rather advanced jazz / blues cat from the east coast. So, are they more rumor than rules? Could be, I just include them here for the fun of it. For those of you that go on to become the pro players, there just might be some truth in a few of the "leaden rules."

Congrats to the cast & musical director,Andrew, on a fabulous show of Little Shop of Horrors at Wildwood Catholic HS last weekend & last night! Awesome show:)
Watching the Macy's parade. Matt Lauer said that the musical director for the parade is Milton DeLugg. Don't know much about Milton, but at one time he was the bandleader for The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson (he replaced Skitch Henderson and he was replaced by Doc Severinson), and was bandleader for the 1970's hit program The Gong Show. Milton is 95. Isn't that incredible?
Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade: For the "Annie" number, they chose to perform not the crowd-pleasing and uplifting "Tomorrow," but "We're Getting a New Deal for Christmas" -- complete with Depression/poverty-themed intro. The Macy's Parade's musical director must be that really obnoxious political cousin that always has to play "devil's advocate" at Thanksgiving dinner. :-P

The Drummer.. A musical director was having a lot of trouble with one drummer. He talked and talked and talked with the drummer, but his performance simply didn't improve. Finally, before the whole orchestra, he said, "When a musician just can't handle his instrument and doesn't improve when given help, they take away the instrument, and give him two sticks, and make him a drummer." A stage whisper was heard from the percussion section: "And if he can't handle even that, they take away one of his sticks and make him a conductor." Read more:

Today makes one week since my back surgery; and I really believe there is some improvement. It's still hard to determine if everything was "fixed" due to the pain from the incision, the bone graft, etc. I walk several times every day, which is just fine with my Chihuahuas. And I guess it's good for me, too... Thanks for all of your support, prayers, best wishes, friendship, and for all the FOOD!!! I have enough food in my refrigerator to feed an army for a month!!! I is/was all quite good, and I am so appreciative. Kristina brought me some REAL Toll-House cookies; my absolute FAVORITE cookie of all time.

Larry Carlton’s own musical story began in Southern California. He picked up his first guitar when he was only six years old. He was introduced to jazz in junior high school after hearing The Gerald Wilson Big Band album, Moment of Truth, with guitarist Joe Pass. Larry then became interested in Barney Kessel, Wes Montgornery and the legendary blues guitarist B.B. King. Saxophonist John Coltrane was also a major influence on Carlton, beginning with Coltrane’s 1962 classic Ballads. In 1968 he recorded his first LP, With A Little Help From My Friends (Uni). The enthusiastic industry response garnered him a place among jingle singers The Going Thing, recording on camera and radio commercials for Ford. Mid-season in his second year, he segued to Musical Director for Mrs. Alphabet, an Emmy-nominated children’s show on the same network. It was here that Carlton showcased his acting skills, performing as the show’s co-star, "Larry Guitar." Calls began to increase significantly as Carlton gained distinctio ...

I'd like to take this opportunity, on behalf of the band, to thank a few people for an amazing two weeks in beautiful Malaysia. Firstly, to Richard O'Toole, our Musical Director, for his tireless hard work in organising pretty much the entire tour. I'm sure I speak for us all when I say his enormous efforts are greatly appreciated. Secondly, to the chaperones Wendy, Margaret, Angela and Reg. They did a fantastic job of keeping us safe and organised. Thirdly, to Noraini, our tour guide. She was a bundle of joy and managed to get us excited about the next sightseeing adventure even when we were exhausted from performing. Lastly, to the people of Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Ipoh. You were all an absolute pleasure to perform for. Your energy and enthusiasm didn't go unnoticed and went a long way towards making this trip a huge success. Thank you all and we hope to be back in Malaysia very soon!

Championed by Late Night (now Late Show) with David Letterman Musical Director Paul Shaffer, Dolby is releasing a product that is more than just an emulation or virtual field but is in fact the real thing. Shaffer, who has been David Letterman's Musical Director since Letterman's show went on the air in the 1980s has always contended that all music is best reproduced in mono. He's not kidding about it. Because of his substantial industry influence, he and Dolby have collaborated on a technology that to many, may seem like it's right out of Friday Morning Auditorium in Sixth grade. If you recall, during those glorious days, the Dukane movie projector was positioned down the center isle between the two sides of students. An extension cord allowed the detachable speaker (which was conveniently built into the projector's case) to be positioned forward of the students, near the stage. Thus the students, while watching the 16mm film screen, would be able to hear all of the subtle dynamics provided by a single e ...

Saw a FANTASTIC concert/performance Tuesday night - "An evening with Marvin Hamlisch". Now for those too young to know who he is, he composed the music for "A Chorus Line", "The Goodbye Girl", "Sweet Smell of Success", "Sophie's Choice", "Ordinary People", "Three Men and a Baby", "Ice Castles". . . I could go on and on and on naming the many movies & Broadway shows he has done. He was the Musical Director of Barbara Streisand's 1994 Concert Tour & wrote many songs for her. He's won 3 Oscars, 4 Grammys, 4 Emmys, a Tony, 3 Golden Globes and even a Pulitzer Prize! He was only 20 years old when asked to go to Hollywood to compose/direct the music for "The Swimmer", staring Burt Lancaster. Anyway, he's now in his 80s & still plays a 'mean' piano; he started the concert with "Night & Day" - MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE ROMANTIC SONG! Never left the stage for 1 hr & 15 minutes. He's also funny, telling stories of funny things that have happened during his long career & (since he landed at the Greenville/Spartanburg ...
