- I am proud to share, what I believe to be, the premiere recording of Baljinder Sekhon's "Distances" for solo marimba. I have had the good fortune of playing the piece many times and happy that this recording is out with Baljinder's support. Please contact Baljinder for a copy of the work. I hope you enjoy!
- Excited to return to the Cavaliers Drum and Bugle Corps for the third year! Great staff, great design, and great players! Read the 2019 Cavaliers Percussion Staff announcement here.
- I live in wonderful town of many great percussionists and percussion teachers, as well as publishing companies. I was fortunate to perform and record two of Nathan Daughtrey's "Duets for an Occasion" a few weeks ago. We recorded "Jupiter" and "Joyful, Joyful." You can purchase a copy from C.Alan Publications here.
- After recording a few marimba solos, I decided to finally record my interpretation of Áskell Másson's Prím. I have been performing this work for several years and thought it was finally time to record and post my performance of this epic piece for solo snare drum. Nervously, I sent the video to Áskell and he responded with "You play both accurately and in a quite refined way which I like immensely." No matter how old you get, such a favorable review is always welcomed!
- Mais Peças, a new piece for solo marimba, was released by Ox and Lamb Music. My good friend Joshua Smith has started a new publishing company and I am happy he has agreed to publish this new piece.
- PASIC is going to be a blast! I will be presenting the Snare Drum FUNdamentals clinic on Saturday morning, serving on two panel discussions (one for the Health & Wellness Committee and one for the Education Committee), and serving as the Chamber Percussion Ensemble Competition coordinator for the fifth year.
