DSA (Denver School of the Arts) auditions…..

Every January there are 100’s of students auditioning for a spot at DSA.
I generally have 2-5 drum students auditioning for very sought after positions in the drum section. This year I have an 11 year old student that took 19 lessons in 60 days and literally learned how to read and play 5 bell scales, 4 snare drum rudiments, and read and play both a prepared bell piece and a prepared snare drum piece…. In ALL my years of teaching, Ive never EVER seen any thing like it.
This kid nailed it!! In 60 days!! I have witnessed an ethic and passion that is unprecedented in such a young man. He auditions today and I wish him the absolute best, I couldn’t be more proud of him.

I also have another 11 year old drummer that has aspired for 4 years to be a solid percussionist not just a drummer. He auditions Saturday and plays like a maniac, he has the most equal hands for a kid….again, couldn’t be prouder!!
BREAK A LEG YOU GUYZ!! YOU DESERVE IT!!
Mr JB
