Timpani Lab at the Metropolitan Opera

Spring 2021 dates are suspended due to Covid-19 and the ongoing Met furlough. Check back regarding possible fall 2021 dates…

“Timpani lab” is my incarnation of timpani studio class, free and open to the public.

While technically under the auspices of NYU (but actually taking place at the Met), my intention is for this to be open to all interested timpanists in the NYC area and broader northeast corridor. We're replicating the “Artful Timpani Auditioning” environment from last July's seminar, but more regularly, with more workshopping opportunities, and focused on actual upcoming auditions. We'll hear plenty of playing from others, critiquing and offering feedback, and mocks.

All sessions take place at the Met in the basement level large orchestra rehearsal room (C28). Again, anyone is welcome to attend; you’ll just need to RSVP to me first so I can get you on the stage door security list.

SPRING 2020 dates:

Mon 1/27, 6p
Mon 2/3, 6p
Fri 3/6, 6p
