Magazine Articles

In the 1980s and early 90s I wrote several articles for percussion and music publications. All of the articles below appeared in a national magazine in one form or another. Some of these articles will appear dated and probably humorous while others have applications which are still relevant. My best, and most enduring effort are the three articles I wrote on how I built my home studio. Copies of that article have been viewed by people all over the world.
