Katie Thomas joins the HSYB as percussion tutor

Many of you may know Katie from her role as percussion tutor for private students or leading the percussion academy as well as the lead percussionist for the Footscray-Yarraville City Band. Well now Katie has also officially joined the HSYB team to help our mentoring our percussionists. This won’t replace the work she does one on one with students but will enhance what HSYB can do not just for brass players but for percussionists as well.

Katie will be coming to Youth Band rehearsals on at least a fortnightly basis to help out and I for one think Katie will be a great support for those beating and shaking rather than blowing.
