My best Faculty Experience

In fourth year Douglas Bodle put together a chamber choir. I was invited to join (not sure why) but it was one of the highlights of my years at the Faculty. I learned so much about phrasing, balance, ensemble, intonation and overall music-making from his coaching.

Percussion prank war!

About eleven years ago there was a long prank war that happened in the percussion studio at U of T. Early one morning, after many, many previous pranks, I went into the practice room and wrapped my friend Greg’s entire drum set in toilet paper. Kick pedal and all. He walked in as I was wrapping the final piece and as he stared in shock, I blurted: “Wait, I’m not done yet….!” I’ll never forget how hard we laughed that day.
