Music: Ensembles (Classical and Chamber Ensemble)

About this creative

I am a student at SMU studying Percussion Performance working towards one day hopefully playing in a professional orchestra. Being in 5 ensembles keeps me busy here at SMU, but I can always work gigs or lessons into my schedule! Outside of playing a wide variety of music through percussion, I also have a thorough background in piano and some organ. I specialize in 4-mallet marimba and playing in an orchestral setting. I am actively involved in the Meadows Symphony Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, Percussion Ensemble, POINT Ensemble (improvisation) and SYZYGY (contemporary music). Please feel free to contact me! (The video I have attached is an audition I submitted for a summer festival - it is mostly excerpts and etudes, but it shows me playing every major percussion instrument. If you would like to see other videos of me playing longer solo repertoire or playing in an ensemble, just let me know!)
