Tell me about your work is a new interview series published by the Division of Jazz Studies at UNT. We're interested in knowing more about the work life of our alumni, what role their musical education plays in the work they do, and what their musical lives are like now. Knowing this will give current students a broader sense of the career paths they could follow, and could suggest ways to prepare for them while they are still studying at UNT. --John Murphy
Congratulations to Professor Ed Soph on being inducted into the Percussive Arts Society's Hall of Fame.
Ed Soph's interview on drummersresource.com was the most downloaded interview of 2015.
The nearly one-hour interview valuable for anyone who is studying music, not only drummers, and not only jazz students. Ed talks about his background, his approach to teaching, how he practices, characteristics of his best students, deep listening, preparing for a career in music, and the UNT program. Link to interview
