Welcome to part II! 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. In Part – II we get down to business and discuss why Haydn is a hack, the new Florida State Percussion Ensemble CD, and the importance of Leigh Howard Stevens’ book “Method of Movement”. Plus, the most epic thing to ever happen on PATV happens about 12 minutes in!
