Welcome! This is a place for music, art, creation and dialogue. There is some legal stuff here but if you have legal questions or inquiries, please visit my law practice website, which you can find here. I hope you enjoy the performances, the videos and all the other content as much as I enjoy making them! There is a lot more on the way.
There are essays and commentary here, which also appear is a different form on my podcast, Creative Confidential.
This is also a place to talk about arts organizations, and the issues they face. Having seen the view as an attorney/outside counsel, as a member of multiple Boards of Directors, and now as the Executive Director/CEO of Performing Arts Live!, I’ve got a few perspectives. Definitely learning new tricks along the way.
I have been playing drums for over 30 years. My most formative years were spent in the percussion section Crossmen Drum and Bugle Corps under Mark Thurston and his staff. The lessons I learned there about drumming, music, responsibility, hard work, and determination serve me still to this day in all different types of environments.
I attended West Chester University and studied percussion with the music department there, working on tympani, mallet instruments, orchestral percussion and music theory. I’ve studied drumset (and still do) with the great Tommy Igoe.
Over the years I have taught many high school and university marching drumlines. I teach private lessons and consult with percussion ensembles. For inquiries on private lessons in person or via Skype, please contact me here.
I run a jazz/funk/rock ensemble, The Bryan Tuk Complex, which takes on many forms and musical styles.
If you have inquiries about booking me for studio work, arranging, producing, private lessons or arts consultancy, please message me directly through the Contact page or through my Facebook page. Cheers!!
