"Knowing I was going to have to be combing the books for this production, I approached this process as I usually do. I lay them out next to each other and see what is the easiest to catch. Then I start working layer by layer adding more and more. I was lucky as I was able to catch around 90% of the percussion parts along with 100% of the kit parts. For the glockenspiel, crotales and timpani notes I used Apple’s Logic Pro on the Alesis SamplePad and edited them to sound as natural as possible for what was notated in the book.”

"After a week or two of rehearsals there is usually a performance or two of the show for an invited audience. Sometimes these performances can be intense if there are important people in the room, or if certain sections of the show feel under prepared. This is why it’s so important to know the score and script very well."

"The unique part of Groundhog Day was that the drummer had to play on stage, in a groundhog costume, wearing a giant groundhog head. Since I could barely see out of the head, it was impossible to read a chart (and there wasn’t a music stand), so it had to be memorized."

"If you are passionate, driven, feel you have a calling, a burning desire to play, practice, perform, and record music that you can share with the world, then choosing to be a professional musician here will make you a fulfilled and happy person. You’ll meet the most amazing people on stage, in the rehearsal room and in the audience."
