Watch Jared Shaw's Senior Recital

Screenshot from Jared Shaw's senior recital video of Jared playing the drum set.

Jared Shaw presented his senior recital on YouTube on May 17, 2020, demonstrating what we believe to be the hallmark of the NYU Percussion Program, a diverse, thorough, and well-rounded approach to playing percussion. The performance featured drum set, xylophone, djembe, and African gyil, as well as a multiple percussion/drum set solo with electronics by Composition faculty member Robert Honstein. Jared is the first chair holder of the drum set book for the NYU Broadway Orchestra, and the premiere of his recital was viewed by some top Broadway composers, music directors, and conductors.
