Eri Isomura (she/her/hers) is a freelance percussionist and marimbist. She is on the faculty at St. Olaf College and a percussion/music instructor at Yinghua Academy for grades 4-6. She worked at GTCYS as a Rehearsal Assistant for 4 years, and is excited to be a part of the artistic and technical growth of student percussionists. Percussion is everywhere in countless genres and at first can be overwhelming. With a proper guidance and a strong foundation, every student can eventually take the artistic paths that best suits their interests and abilities.
