Demonstrating at The Joy of Music School in Knoxville, TN. What a wonderful place serving such a much needed to be supported cause. Please check them out. The Joy of Music School

I’m very much looking forward to going up there again, teaching, demonstrating and learning a whole heck of a lot. The children, the staff and the mission and goals are very important. We must help them for every child should be able to have the option of music.

http://www.joyofmusicschool.org/index.php/goals/

I love teaching kids I remember three percussionist that came to my elementary class when I was in fourth grade. They made such an impact on me and all of us. They demonstrated what they did at the local hotel (show) then later ended up becoming teachers and dear friends of mine. Roger Rampton, Howard Axter and Leo Camera. I hope I got the spelling correct. They were incredible musician but most important wonderful very open and giving individuals. Howard and Roger later started a percussion company by the name of Planet Percussions out of Las Vegas. I still have some of their Timpani gauges that I look forward to putting on the timpanies at DayGLOW Music Experience.
