Hugh Hodgson School of Music lecturer
"Drumming for Success" civic youth program/founder director
I can’t remember not being attracted to drumming. The feeling that I experience when hearing the sound—it was a strong emotional response that I had and there was a direct connection. I knew that there was something about drums and percussion that I identified with immediately. I just knew that it was central to the way that I move through the world and function. I would not have a Ph.D. if it had not been for percussions. It was all about following music but percussion in particular and wanting to learn as much about it as I possibly could.”
