Keynote Address: “Being a “C” Student

I attended the Music for All National Festival and Sandy Feldstein National Percussion Festival on March 14 – 16, 2019. The festival concluded with a Gala Awards Banquet and this year, Eric Martin, President and CEO of Music for All gave the keynote address. In the speech, he wants “you to be commit to your craft.
