The Long & Winding Music Education Road
In addition to his symphony and college work, Brian presents educational percussion programs in elementary schools and percussion clinics in high schools across the Houston area. Bridging this divide between secondary education, post secondary and professional worlds, Brian wants to share some of the things he has learned along the way. As a drummer who worked in a road band after high school; to starting college later in life (after auditioning only at Carnegie Mellon University); to meeting and being changed by some amazing college professors; and then producing his own music and performing with the Houston Symphony for over 30 years (and winning a Grammy® in the process) Brian is excited to share his journey with others who are about to start out on their own.
