Finally done transcribing this #eartraining #berklee



Here’s me covering Marcus Miller’s bass solo on Dave Grusin’s “Friends and Strangers”. I don’t own a fretless but I tried my best to imitate his tone.

Here’s the sheet music I transcribed for my ear training class


Mayfair HS, my alma mater, from Lakewood, California. Another group I wrote the pit book for.

Can’t wait to hear how your first show went =)

Viewmont HS from Bountiful, Utah. 1 of 3 high school marching bands I wrote pit books for.

Great performance guys!


Bringing Stringed Instruments to Life with @jacobvdlippe

For more moments from Jacob’s workshop, follow @jacobvdlippe on Instagram.

“With a new instrument, the musician can actually shape the sound in the first years, making it an integral part in their way of communicating music,” explains Norwegian violin and cello maker Jacob von der Lippe (@jacobvdlippe). “Instead of doing repairs, I focused on making new right from the start.”

For Jacob, who took up cello at age eight, music has been a lifelong pursuit. “My parents were passionate about music, and encouraged my playing,” he says. At 17, he built his first cello as a school project. “From then on, I was hooked.”

“Being able to work with a craft merged with music was something that really appealed to me,” explains Jacob, who spent five years in Cremona, Italy—the violin’s birthplace—studying the trade. Fourteen years and nearly sixty violins later, Jacob’s creations have found their way into the hands of musicians around the globe.
