I live in Oklahoma City and am sad to say that there are NO vibraphone players, or teachers that I know of. I gig around in OKC with a small quartet of Vibes, Drums, Bass, and Trumpet. My dream has been to study with someone who knows what they're doing. I currently go to Oklahoma City University (just finished my freshman year) and study percussion under Dr. David Steffens (an amazing teacher that i respect immensely). Since I was in middle school I was left to fend for myself in learning to play the vibraphone in a jazz setting. I've been practicing this summer about 4 or 5 hours a night. I figure the best way to get tips and to learn is to join this forum and ask questions!
If anyone wants to give me a lesson, I am willing to travel :D!
This site seems to have a ton of good stuff to read up on! It's great
This is a link of me practicing. I'm looking for any tips that you guys may have to offer.
Sorry if i didn't post this in the right section. I have no idea where posts like this should go, or if they should even be done. Forgive my ignorance.
