“Lance Delgado is one of those very few who take this activity to a level where students take away experiences, skills, life lessons and artistry that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.”
–Gary Pratt, Professor of Music and Co-Director of Jazz Studies, California State University, Northridge Department of Music
“Hiring Lance Delgado was one of the best decisions I ever made as a band director. He is not only an extremely knowledgeable, inspiring and talented teacher, he is also an amazing writer for all aspects of percussion. I was always amazed with the musicality of his arrangements. Our drumline placed first at virtually every competition and festival and it was all Lance and his expressive and exciting writing. I highly recommend arrangements by Lance Delgado. The first step to a great performance is great music written to challenge the students and teach them to play MUSICALLY”.
–Tom Whaley, Visual and Performing Arts Coordinator, Santa Monica-Malibu USD and former band director at John Burroughs High School (1991-2000)
“This is top of the line music from WGI Scholastic World to ADLA Scholastic C. I know my students have made incredible progress playing Lance’s exercises and music!”
-Ken Hoffman, Band Director Buena HS 1998-2007, WBA A Class Champions, multi year championships finalist, SCPA PSA Champions, WGI multi year championship finalists, Band Director, El Camino Real HS 2007-present, ADLA Scholastic C Champions
“I have always been extremely pleased with Lance’s writing and teaching. He does an excellent job of creating an effective program that is challenging, yet attainable for any group at any level. I would highly recommend using Lance as a writer or teacher for your percussion students.”
