Frank Epstein

New England Conservatory of Music

I have been lucky in my life, even though starting percussion late in my youth, by working hard, even a little extra hard and being fortunate in having wonderful teachers and colleagues to inspire me have made the journey easy. My inherent love of music has made the journey fun and exciting and being lucky in being at the right place at the right time and making the right decisions, all play a roll in forging a solid professional life experience.

WHAT INSPIRES YOU?

Music inspires me: all sorts of music, orchestral, chamber music, contemporary music, vocal music and opera. It is all good and I love it all. My colleagues have inspired me as have my teachers and friends. When creativity and inspiration join forces, living the life of a musician makes for a very satisfying life.

FAVORITE ZILDJIAN CYMBAL/COMBO

Classic Orchestral Cymbal Selection: 17”, 18”, 20”, 22” cymbals and 17” and 18” suspended cymbals. I helped design these cymbals and they are perfect for use in a hall like Boston's famed Symphony Hall.
