Before taking lessons with Pat, I wasn’t comfortable playing mallet percussion at all. Pat was able to guide me in several ways to develop and improve technique, sight reading, and musicianship overall. A few years later I worked up a 4-mallet keyboard solo and won second place in the Idaho All State Solo Festival. Shortly after that Pat helped me audition get into the 2015 All Northwest Concert Band. Pat definitely has the tools and experience that he can provide to any student to help them become the best musician if they are dedicated.
