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.
