"In the show the music for the 'Small House of Uncle Thomas' ballet, written by dance arranger Trude Rittmann in 1951, features prominent percussion parts. The score calls for actors on stage to play various drums, blocks, gongs, cymbals, and finger cymbals. I am playing a lot of these 'ethnic' percussion parts also in the pit including Rumwong, and Klong Yao drums from Thailand.

The list of instruments I use is below. The most important is the Roc-N-Soc Lunar Series Gas Stool. This stool goes low enough for the drum set and high enough for the timpani. The stool has glides on the feet for a quick 'push back' from the drum set to stand up or spin around, up or down."

Drums:

  • Ludwig Classic Drum-Set with four Tom Toms

Percussion:

  • Chinese Drums (2) I have five in the pit to swap depending on weather conditions
  • Timpani (2)
  • Xylophone 3.5 Octave
  • Vibraphone
  • Glockenspiel
  • Tam Tam 28”
  • Opera Gongs (2) (one pitch bends up - one pitch bends down)
  • China Cymbals (5)
  • Crash Cymbals (2)
  • Splash Cymbals (3)
  • Miller Machines (2) (both with finger cymbals)
  • Triangle
  • Temple Blocks (5)
  • Temple Blocks (2 separate)
  • Wood Block
  • Finger Cymbals (1 pair)
  • Small Concert Bass Drum
  • Wood Block (attached to foot pedal)
  • Rumwong Drum
  • Klong Yao Drum

"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."
