The Percussive Arts Society International Convention in San Antonio, TX was a blast! I had the chance to connect with old friends, students, and teachers (previous student Tyler Bartelt here in the picture to the right, now working for Hal Leonard), make new connections, see some wonderful sessions and performances, and finally finish my interview with the percussion legend Morris "Arnie" Lang. What an experience! I'm excited to get to work finishing my article about his life and then submit it for consideration for publication in the Percussive Notes. Stay tuned for more hopefully soon.
The UW-Eau Claire Percussion Ensemble also recorded a piece at the end of last semester - check it out here (at bottom of page) and on my Media page.
I'm also working towards performing with the UW-Eau Claire Symphony Band on their spring tour next week - and we had a wonderful performance last week. Very excited to get to work with our dedicated students.
April 10 is my faculty recital - if you can't make it in person please watch the live stream feed - more details soon!!!!!!
I've also just locked in being the guest clinician for the Kansas State University Drumline Mini Camp. Looking very much forward to working with those students down there.
Have a great 2016 everyone!
