Jeremy serves as the Director of Percussion for George Rogers Clark High School (GRC) in Winchester, KY. During the school day, he teaches the Percussion Class – which meets five days a week – and assists with the Concert, Symphonic, and Jazz Band Classes. In addition, he visits each of the Clark County intermediate and middle schools throughout the week, providing instruction for every percussionist in the district.
After school hours, Jeremy teaches the GRC Marching Band. He works closely with the in-house design team each year to create a competitive production, serving as the band’s Percussion Arranger.
The GRC Percussion Class provides students with a space to develop their technique and knowledge of music theory. Throughout the year, students participate in the Percussion Ensemble, prepare solo literature, and study and history through individual projects. In addition, students regularly have the opportunity to engage with guest clinicians/ professional percussionists, who have given presentations on topics ranging from concert snare drum technique to Ghanaian Gyil performance.
Students of the GRC Percussion program have regularly been selected by audition to join Kentucky’s elite performance ensembles, including the Kentucky Music Educators Association (KMEA) All-State and All-District Bands, the Central Kentucky Youth Orchestra (CKYO), and the KMEA All-State Percussion Ensemble.
