Book 11-time Grammy winning horn/string arranger Philip Lassiter today for a clinic or workshop at your education facility, college, or classroom. His years of performance, writing, and arranging experience for the greatest artists of our time (Prince, Richard Smallwood, Ariana Grande, Kirk Franklin, Kelly Rowland, and many others) give his students access to a world they can only imagine as working musicians. He is a veteran of the industry and internationally acclaimed artist in his own right.
Here is what one international student had to say about her time in Mr. Lassiter’s jazz/arrangement clinic.
“Philip Lassiter’s masterclass was really inspiring to me! With lots of new exercises I learned, and new interpretations of exercises I already knew, I am now able to improve my horn-playing by myself for months. Because of his enthusiasm, knowhow and experiences in probably the coolest bands I can think of (for example Prince), he knows how to motivate you even more to do the boring exercises we all have to do to try to become a horn-player as good as he is. This inspiring masterclass will be in my mind a really long time, and I would recommend every pop/jazz conservatory to hire Philip!”
Or this Department Head who arranged the jazz clinic…
“Philip Lassiter’s masterclass was energetic and inspiring. The students really loved the positive way you inspired them to be more precise and accurate and it helped them to be a tighter horn-section and a more powerful and expressive band. They enjoyed every minute, had a lot of fun and worked hard at the same time.” – Arjan Muusz – Coördinator Pop (or : Head of the Pop-Department) Conservatorium Haarlem.
Leon Frison, Director of Bands at Kent County Middle School, had this to say…
“Inspiring, captivating, informative and current are just a few adjectives that describe the presentation of internationally acclaimed, musician, songwriter producer and arranger Philip Lassiter. Mr. Lassiter’s presentation to my 112 middle school band students showed them firsthand how musical creativity works in our technology driven world. It was so refreshing to have an artist demonstrate the creative process and show in particular how arrangers help tell the story of a song.”
