beyond ArtLess

Chris Gleason, Peter Haberman & Phil Ostrander

“Beyond ArtLess" with Chris Gleason, Peter Haberman & Phil Ostrander is a podcast that explores the friendships and the community that exists in and outside of the arts and arts education. In each episode of Beyond ArtLess, one of the hosts reveals his mystery guest to the other two. What comes next is a fun-filled conversation revealing the joy of friendship and the artlessness of the hosts. Unlike most successful classrooms, this show is not well planned and probably not worth your time. read less

The competition for dullest pre-guest banter continues on.  Following closely behind pre-guest banter is dull post-guest banter.  Thankfully, we’re able to steal Peter away from his tour for a few minutes.  Chris and Phil have nothing important to be stolen away from.Our guest this week is clearly the most comfortable commentator we have ever had on the podcast.  Pete Winslow’s sports broadcasting skills are impressive and his trombone playing is excellent despite his college teacher (Phil).  He is a member of the US Power Soccer National Team and recently medaled at the 2023 world cup in Australia.  In fact, Pete was the assist leader for the entire world cup tourney, earning him the nickname “The Mailman.”  We have correlating suggestions for nicknames for Peter “The Muppet Man,” Phil “The Malodorous Man,” and Chris “The Mediocre Man.”Join us as we listen to Pete’s story growing up in a musical household, early days playing power soccer and college road trip memories.https://www.powersoccerteamusa.org/roster/pete-winslow/https://www.fox9.com/news/minnesotans-to-represent-us-at-power-soccer-world-cup-in-australiahttps://www.spectatornews.com/top-stories/2014/11/powering-through-life-one-goal-at-a-time/https://youtu.be/mTaANY9YrLw?si=QypsTfM_0sOhyeuUhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qxvFha9JzswWant to find out more about the Beyond The Notes Festival  Click here to learn more.  Registration for ComMission Possible 2025 is now open!

Ever wonder who organizes that big get-together during the holidays? No, I’m not talking about your family’s holiday bash at your Uncle Louie’s house. I’m talking about the Midwest Clinic in Chicago. Kelly Bell is the Executive Director of the Midwest Clinic. She joins us for a wonderful chat about the inner workings of the Clinic, her time at Conn Selmer, mentors like Dr. Tim, and our request for a booth and a t-shirt canon at next year’s Midwest (this also involves a race between John Mackey and Brian Balmages.) Throw in some original music by Paul Budde, and you have a fantastic show (well…fantastic might not be the exact word). Learn More About KellyLearn More About The Midwest ClinicLearn More About The Conn Selmer InstituteClips Used:Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment present a Brian Grazer production ; a Tom Shadyac film ; written by Paul Guay & Stephen Mazur ; produced by Brian Grazer ; directed by Tom Shadyac.

Commuters who have been with us since the beginning have grown to appreciate the “homespun” nature of the podcast.  Well, maybe not appreciate, but gently tolerate?  Phil learns the value of restarting his laptop and pays the price by offering very little for the first half of the episode (shut out).  We learn about Ferryville, Wisconsin and surrounding suburbs. Who knew that a dairy farmers kid could go on to great success as a trumpet player, teacher, band director and currently Director of Bands at the Ohio State University. Dr. Mikkelson shares with us about the value of great teaching and performing to students of all ages and ability levels.  Dave Mueller (former band director at Eleva-Strum) gets multiple shout-outs and so does Kickapoo, Wisconsin.  Free throw shooting, anyone?  We have time to appreciate Russ’ favorite morning beverage, sports teams and moments with former student Erika Svanoe.  Listen on and let this inspire your February commute!https://music.osu.edu/people/mikkelson.1https://education.musicforall.org/clinician/dr-russel-c-mikkelson/https://heiseywindensemble.org/Conductors.phphttps://www.ngsymphony.org/music-directorhttps://www.uwec.edu/news/news/nine-to-receive-uw-eau-claire-alumni-association-awards-5116/Want to find out more about the Beyond The Notes Festival  Click here to learn more. Registration for ComMission Possible 2025 is now open!

Buddy Deshler
This man is Non-Stop! The podcast continues this week by exploring the stories and journey of an extraordinary individual in the world of arts and music - Buddy Deshler. A former Dallas Brass musician, Professor at Furman University, and all-around crazy trumpeter. We dive into Buddy’s early experiences with music, his time with the Dallas Brass, his non-profit “Brass Institutes of America”, and some of those memorable experiences one has when they have toured the world as a performing musician (both good and bad). How can someone so young have so many high profile plates spinning as an educator, performer, and entrepreneur at the same time? Because he is NON-STOP!Learn More About Buddy!https://www.furman.edu/people/buddy-deshler/https://www.brass-usa.com/buddydeshlerArtists - Buddy DeshlerShow Clips:Jack Black & Will Ferrell sing "Get Off the Stage" Oscars Acceptance Speech PSAOverture 'Egmont', op.84, Georg Solti; CSO - BeethovenDallas Brass II - "My Spirit Be Joyful" - Bach.  Get It Here!BTN:Want to find out more about the Beyond The Notes Festival  Click here to learn more. Registration for ComMission Possible 2025 is now open!

Turning The Tables with Claire, Mariah, & Maddie
This week we turn the tables on the hosts and they become the guests! Phil, Chris, and Peter will have to answer questions from Dr. Haberman’s students and…daughter! A role reversal that brings out the amazing talent and insight from Chris and Phil, and leaves a bit to be desired from Peter. Learn about the amazing Dr. Ostrander and his ability to perform at a world-class level as both a classical and jazz musician, find out about the nationally acclaimed educator Chris Gleason and his ability to not only have creativity and vision, but then the tenacity to follow-through has led him to new heights as an educator. Then there is the unconventional Dr. Haberman and the lack of enthusiasm the students have about learning any more about him or his musical journey.Join us as we celebrate our talented hosts and what mentorship they can provide to the world, beyond their bad sense of humor and low-quality podcast!Recordings Referenced:You're a Mean One Mr. Grinch, Original Version - 1966 (HD)“Thunder & Blazes” Fucik - Screamers: Circus Marches Eastmen Wind Ensemble, Frederick Fennell conductorThe Brisk Young Sailor - Lincolnshire Posy, Eastman Wind Ensemble - Donal Hunsberger conductorFlute Partita in A Minor - Bach - Tuba Tracks - Gene PokornyFamily Feud Sound Effects & ThemeSesame Street Letter Of The Day EWant to find out more about the Beyond The Notes Festival  Click here to learn more.  Registration for ComMission Possible 2025 is now open!
