Joy Edenfield

I have presented my dissertation at conferences in Athens, Madrid, Lisbon and Florence, and assisted other international school teachers in setting up alternative percussion ensembles in their schools. The course helped me define a new direction in my teaching career and I am so thankful for that opportunity.
