Department of Music to present low brass clinic with Dr. Marc Dickman, Feb. 24

Feb. 13, 2009 -- The Arkansas State University Department of Music will host a low brass clinic to be conducted by Dr. Marc Dickman. The clinic will begin at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 24 in the ASU Fine Arts Recital Hall. High school students and musicians will have the opportunity to enjoy a clinic with the Besson artist low brass specialist. Dickman will deliver a clinic tailored to the needs of the participants. ASU Director of Jazz Studies Dr. E. Ron Horton says of Dickman, “I had the opportunity to work with him as an educator for a year at the University of North Texas; he was always clear and to the point and able to get a tremendous amount of musicality out of his students in a short amount of time.”

Dickman is an assistant professor of jazz studies and low brass at the University of North Florida, where he conducts Jazz Ensemble III. His versatility on euphonium, trombone, bass-trombone, and tuba in the classical and jazz styles places him in much demand in the North Florida area. He was a featured jazz euphonium artist at the 2000 International Tuba Euphonium Conference (ITEC) in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada; the 2001 ITEC in Lahti, Finland; and the 2002 ITEC in Greenville, N.C. Dr. Dickman frequently appears as a soloist and clinician, and in January of 2002, he conducted the Florida All-State Jazz Ensemble. Those who attend Dickman’s clinic will also be able to enjoy a joint concert to be given by the ASU Wind Ensemble and Concert Choir later on in the evening.
