Wes Funderburk and Tom Gibson: Episode 47
< 1 day ago
Wes Funderburk and Tom Gibson join Andrew & Lance for one of the most chaotic and accidentally informative episode yet. We and Tom both live in Atlanta and write, gig, teach and conduct there (both play/conduct/arrange for the Atlanta Pops, the Joe Grandson Big Band and teach at Kennesaw State University. Additionally, Wes teaches at Georgia State and Tom teaches at the University of West Georgia). They each have also launched successful online projects (one of which involved a banana and a net pot) and happen to be two of the funniest people on the earth. Tom unpacks his tone color, time and note shape approach to teaching and Wes recalls the time he borrowed a burger from Hardee’s. Warning: It’s a little chaotic at the beginning of the episode. Hang in there. It’s worth it. Links: Wes' personal website Wes' Kennesaw bio page Tom's West Georgia University bio page Atlanta Pops Joe Grandsen Big Band Want to help the show?
