“You know, I was a high school senior at Boise High and graduated in 2015, and having been in music from when I was in sixth grade, I had believed that I knew something or two about Percussion. And yet within the weeks of working with Mr. Flaherty, I now realize that many of the rhythms that I knew were merely cheap tricks, and that in order to be a truly good Percussionist, you must have your basics down. Basics, in fact, are probably the most important, yet least stressed area of Percussion, and I have Pat to thank for helping me to fix what issues I had. My playing has improved by a considerable margin and I have him to thank for it.”
