UT, Austin Residency

UT, Austin Residency

It has been a busy couple of weeks! Last week, I was in Austin at the University of Texas. While in Austin, I worked with the UT Steel Drum Band and Percussion studio. During the residency, the UT Steel Drum Band premiered a new piece I wrote called Samba de los Changitos. (I will post the audio and/or video when it becomes available).

I would like to thank Dr. Thomas Burritt for bringing me to UT Austin and David Saad, director of the UT Steel Drum Band! I would also like to thank my sponsors Yamaha Percussion Instruments, Zildjian Cymbals, Innovative Percussion, and Evans Drumheads. I had an amazing time working with the students in the studio and steel band. Thanks for the incredible hospitality and energy!
