In a residency, I visit your school from one day up to a week or more and work with your marimba, percussion and band students. Activities usually include master classes, clinics, rehearsals, coaching percussion ensemble, and a final public performance where I perform with your students.

Benefits for Your Students

When a world class musician visits your school and spends time interacting with your students their world changes as they experience the highest virtuosic musical performance level and get hands on experience in creating their own music and taking their music to a higher level - my residency brings inspiration, excitement, and motivation to your music program.

Crockett Elementary School in Houston Texas

Crockett Elementary is an Arts Magnet School and has a fourth and fifth grade marimba ensemble. In this video you can hear the results as we explored improvising, and learned a blues scale. One dedicated student learned a four mallet marimba solo, Yellow After the Rain!


Park View High School in Sterling Virginia

I have worked with the percussion ensembles, inspiring students to take their musical performance and study to a much higher level in helping them prepare for performances and festival appearances.
