Mike List Percussionist

About

I grew up like most percussionists in the American schools.  I played in concert band and marching band and played drumset in jazz band and in a basement band with friends.  I went to college and played a lot of marimba and multi-percussion music.  In college I was introduced to drumming styles from India and the middle-east.  As a "percussionist," someone who plays a whole family of instrument, I was intrigued by these sounds and cultures and decided to play some of these non-western drums as well.  I spend a lot of time playing non-western percussion but I still enjoy hitting things with sticks as well.
