Our next #StudioSpotlight is Joe Codispoti, who will be presenting his graduate recital next Saturday, April 17, at 3:30pm.

Joe Codispoti is currently finishing his second year as a percussion graduate student and the Percussion GA at IUP, studying with Dr. Michael Kingan. During his time at IUP, he has performed with the Wind Ensemble, Symphony Orchestra, Jazz Band/Jazz Ensemble, and Percussion Ensemble. He’s also served as the Percussion Instructor for the Saint Vincent College “March of the Bearcats” Marching Band, a Mock Interviewer for the IUP Career and Professional Development Center, and a Teaching Artist with a private studio of percussion students at the IUP Community Music School.

Joe holds a BSE in Music Education from the Tell School of Music at Millersville University, where he studied under James Armstrong and Stephen Goss. During his time at MU, he performed with ensembles such as the Percussion Ensemble (MUPE), Wind Ensemble, Jazz Band, Orchestra, University Choir, SAMBA’ville, and MU Steel. As president of MUPE, he helped run three Pennsylvania PAS Days of Percussion held at MU and acted as a liaison between Student Government Association and the ensemble. He was also the recipient of the Louis Vyner Scholarsphip, a part of the Music for Everyone Scholars program, a Music Research Fellow at Millersville’s McNairy Library, and a drumline tech with the Ephrata High School Marching Unit. Joe is a member of the Percussive Arts Society (PAS) and a brother of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia.

In addition to the concerts and recordings he’s performed on during his time as a student, you can hear Joe’s drum set playing on the EP “The Waiting Room” and the album “Garden State Skies” by NJ-based band All Systems Go. Joe has been the drummer for the band since 2017 and did the video editing for the band’s quarantine cover series in 2020.

After he graduates from IUP in May, Joe will be moving back to South Central PA to pursue a career in music education. When he’s not playing, teaching, or listening to music, you can find him relaxing with friends and family, watching TV (especially Philadelphia sports and Star Wars), playing video games, and going on walks in his spare time.

Today the Ehs concert band traveled to Temple University to perform in the Temple University Festival of Winds . We performed and received feedback on our performance.

Congrats to Ehsmu member Carly Gilbert for making PMEA Region V Band . Unfortunately winter decided to not go away and the concert happened on Friday night instead of Saturday. However the group still sounded amazing even with only a day of rehearsal.
Next stop for Carley is PMEA ALL State Orchestra

Music and the brain: Why schools should really fund music education more

Ephrata does a good job, but it is important to keep the decision makers focused on why it is so valuable to our students.

Music and the brain: Why schools should really fund music education more Back in high school, if there was one thing I could rely on every year, it was the annual threat that the music program would be cut. Usually, by the time the budget passed in April, these threats became meaningless and the program was saved. However, it was frustrating to hear that every year, the....
