Presenting a session at the 2016 NC Music Educators Association Professional Development Conference entitled "Becoming a Drum Whisperer". From the NCMEA write-up: "This session is geared toward any Band or Orchestra teacher who wants to improve their concert percussion section's sound, organization, and culture through their full ensemble rehearsals. This session may be particularly helpful for non-percussionist teachers who want to get a handle on the concepts and practices that make for great sounding (and behaving) percussion sections. Session topics will include rehearsal expectations, rehearsal/stage setups, equipment responsibilities, common equipment fixes, instrument/implement selection, part assignment/rotation, common technical and tone considerations, warmup integration, effective commentary, time management, and supplemental solo and ensemble literature."
