About Anthony Taylor

Associate Professor of Clarinet at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Principal Clarinetist for the Winston-Salem Symphony, Second and E-flat Clarinetist for the Eastern Music Festival. I am interested in authenticity, wholeness and true collaboration. Overall, my life and work is focused on empowering people toward self-actualization as leaders, artists, and human beings, and this passion has led me to Alexander Technique, nonviolence, and Buddhist techniques as practical means of reaching those goals. As Mahatma Gandhi said: “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” I passionately work on how to help people create the conditions for themselves where approaching that ideal is possible. I have developed this website because I am beginning to fully understand how my various interests cohere. As I get clearer about this for myself, I hope to pursue my goals with more passion, energy, and effectiveness.

    WOW Anthony, this is terrific. Wish I knew how to do all of this. You are talented in soooo many ways. And I greatly appreciate your sharing your true self this way. I’ve missed seeing you. Hopefully we will end up at the same place – wherever that may be – in the near future.

    I am a 67 year old bass player and have been transcribing for 50 years. Thank you very much for making available your transcription of Ken Poplowski’s solo on Menina Flor by Luiz Bonfa. Transcribing has been, for me, a great way to help me keep in close touch with the complex jazz dialect of the language of music. I am grateful that you have shared your time-consuming transcription to help improve literacy in this dialect.

    Mr. Taylor: You have a wonderful website. I especially enjoy your transcribed solos. Would you happen to have transcriptions for “Pagin’ the Devil” from the Kansas City Sessions? There does not appear to be hyperlink to the actual file, and I would love to see see those.
    Thank you much.
