I've now been playing percussion for 60 years! I consider myself both a performer and a teacher. I also have written three books and hundreds of articles. Now retired, I still love playing, teaching, composing, and writing.

Most memorable Next-Level PerformanceAs timpanist with the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra: A concert program of Scriabin's "Poem Extase", Bartok's "Piano Concerto No. 3", and Sibelius' "Symphony No. 5". Three absolutely great works with amazing timpani parts.
