Welcome to today’s conversation with Joseph Alessi, Principal Trombone with the New York Philharmonic.
In our conversation, Joe shares wonderful wisdom on many topics, including the importance of fundamentals, the types of mindset that are helpful to nurture, tips on performance preparation, helpful habits to adopt, and so much more. I know that you're going to find this discussion really interesting and will take a lot of Joe’s insight with you in the practice room today!
