Scroll down for specific educational offerings.
Students receive one-on-one instruction related to technique, musicality, repertoire, and more.
Students perform solo or ensemble repertoire and receive feedback in front of their peers. This is a wonderful way to provide a low-pressure performance opportunity and turn individual teaching into a relevant group lesson.
The most open-ended of the offerings, this is the catch-all for teaching and/or performing endeavors that are more extensive than perhaps one master class or clinic. A smaller residency at a university could involve a clinic, recital, and private lessons, whereas a larger one may include several clinics, a recital, master class, and solo performance with the percussion ensemble.
This type of instruction includes workshops, discussions, or lecture recitals related to specific topics such as technique, musicianship, movement and gesture in performance, and much more. Leach’s recent work has focused on the discovery and implementation of one’s creative vision, personal branding, collaboration, effective social media usage, and the materials needed to be successful in the digital age (videos, website, electronic press kit, etc.), tying into his own career-building strategies as a soloist. Clinics are generally 60-90 minutes in length and geared towards an advanced high school or college audience.
