Antoine Drye Melody Master Class: Tone Enhancement

Antoine Drye Melody Enhancer

The class will start with a warm-up on the major and minor scales. Then Antoine Drye will discuss enhancing your tone through melody -- and using your ear. 

Having graduated from North Carolina School of the Arts (HS diploma), University of New Orleans (BM) and Aaron Copland School of Music (MM) gives Drye an impressive list of academic credentials. Yet, it’s his on-the-job training that has most significantly shaped his playing and career.

Throughout his career, Drye has worked across musical genres with a wide range of artists including Ellis Marsalis, Delfeayo Marsalis, Jason Marsalis, Wycliffe Gordon, Wessell Anderson, Brian Blade, Victor Goines, John Boutte, Kermit Ruffins, Henry Butler, Daniel Lanois, Houston Person, Tim Warfield, Mark Gross, Lafayette Harris, Paul Simon, The Brand New Heavies, Mike Longo, Mark Whitfield, Taylor Mac and Justin Vivian Bond among many others.
