I'm off to Louisville. I'm quite excited about the trip. I expect it will be a great learning experience and hang.
I'm rooming with my former Berklee College of Music professor and adviser Andy Jaffe. I expect to meet lots of folks from my musical past there including Ed Soph, Bobby Shew, and lots of Berklee folks.
I will be posting details of the workshops and concerts here over the next couple of days. Drum workshops will be posted on my drum blog. Have a look here: Drum blog
Piano inspiration of the week is found here: Pianist magazine.
Ninety six instructional videos on the fine art of classical and jazz piano.
I have new recordings of myself playing drums in the Toronto band "Jakes not here" on the hear me button. Jazz and Blues fun, found at the bottom of the page.
You've got to learn your instrument. Then, you practice, practice, practice. And then, when you finally get up there on the bandstand, forget all that and just wail.
I'm a professional pianist and music educator in West Toronto Ontario. I'm also a devoted percussionist and drum teacher.
