DeMorrow Instruments

The Reference Standard in Hand-Crafted Keyboard Percussion.  The pictures on my home page show both the new Concert DeMorrow marimba (concert grand black finish), and the travelling frame (made from African Mahogany wood).

Dream Cymbals and Gongs
Steve Weiss Music

Steve was a good friend of mine.  He actually saved my life once.  I have purchased most of the equipment Ithaca College owns from Weiss, for almost 35 years.  Still the best!

Favorite Artists

Thomas Burritt

Tom is such a great marimbist, percussionist, and musician, that all should check out his site!  His list of accomplishments is too long to mention here.  He is Professor of Percussion at the University of Texas at Austin, and his CD Groundlines contains the absolute definitive recording of my work Four Dances for solo marimba.  It is stunningly beautiful!!

Percussive Arts Society
I have been a member of PAS most of my life, beginning sometime in the 1960's. If you are interested in the field of percussion, you should be a member. No questions.
Ithaca College
I have taught here since 1980, and will most likely continue to do so till' retirement.
Contemporary Music Project
A great site for a lot of reasons, one of which is that Don is a former student of mine, and great friend, percussionist, composer, teacher, and on and on.
