"Student demand for technology in percussion is peaking. I teach four different courses that are either directly about technology or peripherally involve it. Students really need to be adept at the technology, so that they can get the jobs that will define the musical landscape in the future. In ten to fifteen years, the landscape of drumming is going to change drastically. Today, when you think of a band you think drum set, guitar, bass, singer. In the future, I think many bands are just as likely to be comprised of electronic drummer, keyboard, guitar, and singer."
