Zildjian's Peter Erskine put on a clinic about jazz drumset soloing. He spoke at length about musical phrasing and making logical sense out of a solo. During his master class he listened to about 15 young drumset players perform pieces and critiqued them. He presented open clinics for the Dallas/Fort Worth Area and for our music students here on campus. Peter literally shared every waking moment with our students and faculty, offering new ideas and support and overall impressing everyone with his artistry and joyful music making. In the clinics, rehearsals and performances, Peter brought the highest level of excellence.
