Hey everyone! In today’s video, I’m pleased to bring on fellow composer and YouTuber Joshua Sohn! As many of you have asked questions about percussion writing, arranging, and orchestration, I thought it only appropriate that we do a dedicated video on percussion by someone who specializes in percussion! Hope you enjoy.
