Fun Fact: I once played the cello. When I'm not in band I enjoy playing video games, and discovering good food and drink. I also have a dog named Duke, and there is only one useful ear on my head.

What advice would you give to someone who is interested in joining Cavaliers Indoor Percussion?

Talk to the returning members; it's the fastest way to get over the "audition awkwardness." Also be very flexible, this activity is very taxing on the mental side as well on the physical. You need to be able to apply changes with no chance to "rep" them before hand. The best answer when asked to do something that seems impossible, is "I'll do it."
