Two great young drummers were recently accepted into two world class music schools: Berklee College of Music in Boston and The New School in New York City. Donovan Marshall and Wisper McRae of Paterson, NJ.
Donovan began studying at the Matt Kane School of Drumming though the Alaadeen Master/Apprentice Scholarship in the Spring of 2015. Since, Donovan has defined his dream of persuing music at the college level. He is traveling to Peru with the Jazz House Kids Ambassador group in April of 2016.
Whisper McRae began studying at the school in August, 2015 and has been shining brightly this year at Jazz House Kids and has also performed her first date as a leader at the Hat City Kitchen. " Whisper wrote: I would like to thank Matt Kane for teaching so many great things and helping me with my pre-screen! And just being such a great drum instructor because without him I wouldn't have the confidence to even apply.."
Their success came through discipline, which in turn creates freedom.
I am enormously proud of them and wish them all the great things in life!
