DRUM, DANCE & SING...
Scott DeVeaux, University
"For the past three years, we have hosted Mr. Dunyo in a residency that lasts for more than a month, and that involves him in the instruction of students ranging in ability and experience from rank beginners to professional percussionists. I have also worked with him to develop workshops and presentations for age-groups ranging from preschool to adult in schools, churches, community centers, and so forth. In all of these contexts, Mr. Dunyo is unfailingly enthusiastic, hard-working, and inspiring. He has a knack for getting beginners involved and preventing them from becoming discouraged by their limited skills. For more advanced students of the music, he is willing to work as long and as hard as necessary to attain a professional, energetic, and wholly authentic mode of performance. He is equally effective in long-term residencies and one-day workshops, always aiming to produce a musical result that will leave a lasting impression on the participants.Scott DeVeaux, Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies, Mclntire Department of Music, University of Virginia (Tel. 1-804-977-7369; email@example.com)

"We in the west tend to overlook the need and importance to appreciate the values of cultures different from our own, despite of fashionable contemporary rhetoric about "world music" in principle. For all the lip service to a `new global musical awareness', our attempts often remain merely conceptual in nature.Prof. Dr. Gyula Csapo, Head, Composition and Theory Program, Department of Music, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, (Tel. 1-306-966-6171)

"Mr. Dunyo recently taught a two-hour class to students aged 6 to 11 years at the Shambhala Elementary School in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Mr. Dunyo was able to captivate and hold the children's attention while teaching them a phenomenal amount of material. He is skilled at relating to each individual and at the same time, he is easily able to hold a strong awareness and container of the entire group.Deborah Luscomb, Administrator, Shambhala Elementary School, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
