Back to School!

Hello everyone!
It’s that time of the year – and what an exciting year it will be!

The school year has just begun for the School District of Philadelphia, and I’m excited to start my second year as a Percussion/Drum teacher. I will be entering some new schools, and returning to a few from last year. This year will be an exciting, yet challenging one as I prepare to teach not only basic concert band percussion and drum set, but also latin percussion.

In August, I began my second year with Villanova University’s band, and what a great start it has been! We had five members of the drum line graduate, and received five incoming Freshmen who are great additions to the group. We had our first performance at last Saturday’s Football game against Fordham University, and they did a phenomenal job. I’ll be with the group for all Villanova home football games and any other performances that may pop up, so check out my DATES page for details and come say hi!

Over the summer I began performing with singer Nicole Tranquillo in Atlantic City for her performances at Tango’s Lounge in the Tropicana Casino. She has asked for me to continue with the new dates for the Fall, one of which is Halloween night. Make sure you visit the DATES page for details!

That’s all for now, until next time!
