Fresh off a residency at the University of Texas at Austin, I sat down and had an off-the-cuff conversation with Dr. John Parks who is Associate Professor of Percussion at Florida State University. We discuss guest artists, weight loss, play word association, and wonder if Haydn is a hack. Part II will air Sunday, and I promise you, you won’t want to miss that one!

Who are your favorite guest artists? Feel free to play some “percussion” word association, but play nice! Leave your comments and word associations below.
