I’m so lucky that I get to do what I love for living. Playing the drums – all kinds of drums – in all kinds of different settings. This work is so fulfilling.
I play the drum kit for jazz, Caribbean and Afro-Brazilian music groups. I also accompany dance classes for several hours each week.
Tomorrow morning I’ll be teaching students at a middle school about the history of steel drums from Trinidad.
Last week, I was playing the music of Ornette Coleman. Yesterday, I was playing in a duo with cellist for a contemporary dance class. Today, I’m playing for a master class led by Troy Powell director of Ailey II Dance company.
For me every day’s an adventure.
