Episode 7: John H. Beck

The one and only John H. Beck, Professor Emeritus of Percussion at Eastman School of Music, joins the show! He talks about his teaching philosophy, his wine philosophy, what it was like teaching people like Steve Gadd, Leigh Howard Stevens, Gordon Stout, John Hollenbeck and Michal Burritt, his fortissimo snare drum roll during his Philadelphia Orchestra audition, the late, great Alan Abel, and more. So much percussion history during this hour from one of our favorites. Enjoy!
