I am happy to say that my Final Dissertation on Kevin Volans' multiple percussion solos has been successfully defended! I am so grateful to all the teachers, students, and members of my family for helping me and supporting me throughout this final milestone in my DMA. Below is the YouTube link to the lecture on my dissertation - hope you enjoy!
I had a great time giving a clinic on snare drum at Texas Woman's University last night. Many thanks to Jacob Garcia for having me out to work with the students and to Neil Larrivee and Christian Lyman at Vic Firth for their wonderful support!
I am very excited to announce that I have been selected to serve on the Contest and Audition Procedures Committee for the Percussive Arts Society (PAS)! PAS and their wonderful resources have been crucial in my development as a percussionist and as a musician. I am extremely honored to serve in this capacity.
I was recently featured on VicFirth.com, performing "Kím" by Áskell Másson. I am very honored to be a member the Vic family; their commitment to high quality products and percussion education has truly made our field a better place for many years to come. You can check out the performance below - hope you enjoy!
On April 7th, I finished my 3rd and final DMA recital at the University of North Texas. It was a true honor and privilege to share this music with people. I have uploaded the videos of my recital to my YouTube channel. You can find a link to it under the "Contact" section of this site. Hope you all enjoy - until next time!
