“Mille grazie” to Philadelphia Orchestra timpanist Don Liuzzi for a fabulous lesson today teaching Dominick Palazzo the finer points of performing Schumann #1. Lots of added notes and things for Dom to process before the orchestra concert on Tuesday night. As usual, Dom was totally prepared and responded really quickly to Mr.Liuzzi’s directions and suggestions.

Dylan Bader played in his first masterclass on marimba yesterday and did a terrific job.  For each student, the first time performing in front of your studio peers can be daunting to say the least.  This one went just as expected……very well.image1

Great concert of Indian classical music last night with guests Branan Dubh, Shawn Mativetsky and Payton MacDonald.
