Welcome

Thank you for visiting the new VincentHerring.com - the hub of all my music and teaching activities. Please click around and check out all the new site has to offer. You can see my itinerary, view and order recordings in the discography section, and learn about my current and upcoming projects.
Most exciting of all is the Teaching + eBooks + eStore section of the site. Here you can book live-in person or online lessons with me via Skype and download my new eBook (coming soon).
I'm also going to be blogging about instruments and accessories. If I use it and think it's a worthwhile accessory I will talk about it. First up is Just Joe's Gel Sax Strap, the most comfortable sax strap on the market. Made in the USA and Germany, Joe's Gel Strap gets every detail correct. Also available are Ishimori Wood Stone straps and ligatures.
