summer clinic stop #2: aspen music festival and school

as the turmoil of the met orchestra's prolonged negotiation winds down, (including my part in the whole process,) i can finally reflect on some of the percussion-related things that happened this summer. 

on july 21st, i was honored to give a clinic to the percussion department at the aspen music festival and school, where i had been a student just 10 years earlier.

here’s my 8-piece snare drum setup, including every piece of gear and accessory you'll need. (and it's totally audition-ready, too.)
