I love to see my students push the edges of their envelope, enter a new dimension and take their musical performance skills to a new high. This spring Amber Bowen-Longino did just that as she prepared for the ITG Competition. At the 2021 International Trumpet Guild Conference in June, she was the Second Prize Winner in the Senior Division of the International Trumpet Guild’s Etude Competition. This academic year has been an exceptionally great year for Amber. She also won first chair in the 2021 Maryland All State High School Band. Congratulations Amber!! Bravissimo!!!!
