A quick video on a brand new topic for me – mallet wrapping.
After traveling with the World Percussion Group and performing at the Yamaha Young Performing Artist Concert this summer, I did not touch an instrument for TWO MONTHS.
I was burnt out.

2. Act as a platform/hub for releasing different kinds of content.
3. Generate income.
