“My set up for Cinderella is relatively uncomplicated. The music is classic Rodgers and Hammerstein, but with orchestrator Danny Troub's usual fresh, orchestral take on the score.

The central position of the LP Granite Blocks and Miller Machine is inspired by the ‘Mary Poppins’ Broadway set-up, and makes for comfortable access. The small tom is only used for certain colors, and not in a normal ‘drum set vein’.

We're all very lucky in this pit, relying almost exclusively on acoustic sound and very little monitor use. Though there's some plexiglass in front of me, the acoustic bass is immediately to my left, percussion behind me, and we hear each other quite well. All the requisites for nightly musical, enjoyable pit experience."

"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."
"Once you get 'that call' to do a show, the first objective for every percussionist is to find out what instruments will be required. There are a number of different sources that might provide this."

"After a grueling four years at SUNY I still had one theory class left to finish. I was really depressed. A classmate of mine recommended me for a tour of a Broadway show. This completely changed the course of my life."
