"A Gentleman’s Guide To Love & Murder. The perfect blend of murder and comedy… What else do you need?

The book for this show relies heavily on orchestral percussion (glockenspiel, xylophone, and timpani), but also has some traditional drum set components. I had a blast designing my setup for this production!

With limited space in the pit, I decided to program the xylophone and timpani onto my trusty Yamaha DTX-Multi 12 Electronic Percussion Pad. This has been one of the best investments I've made in my musical career because it helps provide lots of different sounds when you’re limited for space. I did decide to use a glockenspiel because I felt like that sound needed to be acoustically represented.

The orchestration of this score definitely made figuring out patch switches, mallet transitions, and what instruments to choose interesting. There is really no room to hide during the show because so many of the parts are very exposed and played by yourself and traded between the different instruments of the pit. I DEFINITELY got my counting practice in on this one.

Overall, this show was an awesome experience and reignited my love for orchestral percussion. Our production also featured two of the leads from the National Tour along with the Broadway director and choreographer. It was really cool to work with them!"

"It hasn’t always been easy (and it’s certainly very odd right now!) but personally I’ve always enjoyed the challenge. I’ve heard a few things along the way that have informed how I’ve thought about New York City and the idea of 'making it'”.

"The musical experience of recording a Broadway cast album ranges from easy to difficult depending on the circumstances. I find that the two factors that contribute most to the quality of the experience are: 1) how good the band is; and 2) how soon after you started the show you record the album"

"When I was preparing to conductNice Work if You Can Get It, I began by watching a video of the conductor and marking my score with any cues or beat patterns that were not obvious to me. I wanted to be completely comfortable with the Musical Directors choreography before watching the video of the stage and trying to put the music to the action of the actors and dancers."
