William Floyd High School students enrolled in Allison Wiegand’s Business of Music class recently welcomed John Sawicki, a drummer and body percussionist with more than 25 years of experience in the music industry for some insight about his experiences and the various opportunities available for aspiring musicians and performers. Sawicki, whose credits include performing as a cast member of “STOMP” And “STOMP Live,” as well as an actor, producer and teacher, shared his experiences with the students and engaged them through various percussion demonstrations.
“The students had the opportunity to not only meet and interact with John, but they learned about career paths within the music industry,” said Ms. Wiegand. “His message was clear that no matter what you decide to do, one needs to do it one hundred percent, with a clear head and staying true to yourself.”
