As part of their Fund for Teachers fellowship Dr. T. and Mr. Johnson continue to take private lessons with pianist Alex Brown, bassist Josh Marcum, percussionist Paulo Stagnaro, and drummer Eric Doob. They have also been fortunate enough to see all of these amazing musicians perform at venues throughout NYC. In just the past week Dr. T. and Mr. Johnson have seen performances by these musicians as well as singer Christelle Durandy, bassist Edward Perez, guitarist Sergio Valdeos, guitarist Eric Kurimski, pianist Luiz Simas, and the Pedrito Martinez Group. The knowledge and skills that Dr. T. and Mr. Johnson are learning will all be shared with WHEELS music students when they study Latin music in band classes and general music classes.
