Spent some time deep diving into percussion with some very intuitive and self-motivated young percussionists today! I absolutely LOVE getting to work with students in a small group setting especially in a summer camp environment. We were able to really take the time that’s needed to work through concert percussion techniques and my overall goal was for them to name their own goals at the beginning & help them build confidence in the areas that are weaker. In just a month or so they’ll be in the grind of marching band and they won’t have as much time to devote to concert percussion & prepping for all-state and region auditions. I’m so incredibly thankful to have folks that bring me in to work with their students in a variety of capacities and situations. It is the Band Directors I work with and my colleagues that continue to breathe passion and belief into what I set out to do after leaving the k-12 music classroom as a full-time teacher back in 2015. It’s incredible to think about the sacrifices that we’ve gone through for me to get to this point.... I know I’ve got a lot to learn and quite a bit of improvement that can be made in certain areas but this is the kind of work that I love to do and feel like actually matters to me. 🎶
