Are you a timpanist
aspiring to hone your approach to excerpts, audition-taking, and refining your
sound? I'll have a ton of my custom sticks and my personal set of Adams
Dresden Classic timpani at this seminar, so this is for you! Are
you a dedicated and committed high school or college-level percussionist intent
on refining your practice room process? This is for you! Do you
want to learn more about how efficient practicing is the cornerstone of an
effective audition process? Then this deliberate practice bootcamp is definitely for you.
We've recently added an afternoon/evening session on Friday, July 7, that will be a round table dinner/discussion with area pros and expert auditioners; Jason Arkis (Minnesota Orchestra), John Jutsum (Madison Symphony), and Alex Wadner (New World Symphony, and recent multi-audition finalist) will join us for a relaxed hang and sharing of different perspectives.
