Jeffrey Grant, timpani

University of Southern California Jeffrey-Grant-circle

How did you choose your instrument?

Drums and all the various percussion instruments have fascinated me from a young age.  I started studying drum set in elementary school, started percussion studies in middle school and have never looked back.

What piece are you most excited to play this upcoming season?

Mahler’s music has always captured my attention.  The entire orchestra was his instrument which I believe he truly mastered.

What have you learned from AYS so far and what are you hoping to gain from AYS in the future?

AYS has given me the greatest opportunity to make music with an orchestra and the even greater gift of sharing that music with listeners both new and old.
