Composer / Arranger Details:

Kevin Tuck graduated from Adelaide University in 1996 with a Masters Degree in Percussion, and has been teaching music as well as performing on percussion and drum kit throughout the last fifteen years.

With extensive experience in the classroom, as Director of his own Music School and as a percussionist, Kevin has written a range of pieces focusing on percussion, which are particularly relevant in a music education setting.

Kevins pieces are based on simple ideas that work in practice. Students enjoy playing them and audiences can't get enough of them.

Kevin has always had a belief that Music should be fun, and so Kevin and his wife Janice have formed a company called the Fun Music Company Pty Ltd, which publish a range of musical materials on the internet.

I''m a high school student in Michigan, and my percussion ensemble has been playing this peice the past couple of years. I think this peice is excellent, and it has become a great "encore" (or ending) to our show.
