"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."
