In a fusion of passions, Seth created Dark Sky Percussion with his friends and family - an indoor percussion ensemble originally from Flagstaff, AZ, now based in Los Angeles. Over the years, DSP has given hundreds of young percussionists the chance to learn from great educators and perform in front of crowds across the Southwest and at WGI Championships.
