    The 2014 Midwest Preview

    The Midwest Clinic is coming up in December and Pepper will be there with a host of great guests.  We’ll also be handing out the Midwest Pamphlet, which is your guide to the clinic, but right now we would like to present an inside look at what is happening at the Pepper booth, #807.

    Pepper has been lucky enough to secure appearances from some of the top names in music this year, both at Midwest and at our corporate headquarters in Exton, Pennsylvania.  One of the brilliant musicians we have the pleasure of hosting at Midwest is Tracy Harris, author of The Flute Boot Camp Manual.  Tracy will appear at the Wingert-Jones booth on Thursday the 18th and spend most of the day with us discussing her new release and signing copies.  Just a few weeks ago, Tracy was in our Exton office to present her Boot Camp to local flute students.  We were able to make a great video with Tracy introducing the objectives of her camps and how they came to be.  Check it out!

    We are also pleased to announce that trumpet legend Roger Ingram will be stopping by our booth as well.  He will be signing his new book, Clinical Notes on Trumpet Playing, and talking all things trumpet.  In October, Ingram visited the Exton office to present his Trumpet Master Class.

    But those are not the only marquee appearances at the Pepper Booth this year.  Frank Battisti and William Berz will be signing their new book Sourcebook for Wind Band and Instrumental Music on Thursday, December 18 at 3:00 pm.  Mary Jo Papich will be in our booth signing The Jazzer’s Cookbook on Friday at 9:45 am, and Joseph Kreines will be in our booth signing his book Music for Concert Band:  A Selective Annotated Guide to Band Literature on Friday at 1:45 pm.
