RMPA-Con Adds to Clinician Roster!

The Rocky Mountain Percussion Association is excited to announce the addition of Joy Liu-Nunez and other clinicians to RMPA-Con 2021!

Joy Headshot

Joy Liu-Nunez joins Bret Kuhn as a headlining clinician for RMPA-Con 2021, coming up on November 6th! Joy helps bolster the clinician roster for Mallet players, as well as adds a wealth of knowledge for instructor tracks.

RMPA President, Lauren Maxwell had this to say about Joy, "Joy is not only an exceptional performer and clinician, but brings a unique perspective on teaching and developing students and programs from her day to day work as a therapist. As we get back to 'Drumming Together,' Joy's addition to RMPA-Con 2021 is a huge win for members and instructors alike!"

Joy resides in Los Angeles with her husband, Tony, and their puppy, Lil’ Puff. As an avid traveler and planner, her favorite places to be are Seattle and Copenhagen.

Joy currently serves as the program manager with RCC Indoor Percussion, front ensemble instructor with Arcadia High School, and the director of operations with Arcadia Music & Arts Symposium. She has more than 10 years of experience as a percussion instructor including past experiences with Carolina Crown Drum & Bugle Corps and high schools across Southern California.

Her marching experiences include the Blue Devils Drum & Bugle Corps and RCC indoor.

Beyond the pageantry, Joy is a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist in private practice helping clients with trauma and life challenges. She is also an advocate for students and members’ mental health in the marching arts. 

Joy holds a Bachelor of Arts in Music, Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, and Master of Science in Counseling.

In addition to Joy, RMPA is also excited to announce additional clinicians that will be assisting Bret Kuhn and Joy Liu-Nunez during student sessions:

RMPA-Con 2021 (Formerly RMPA Day of Percussion) is the Official Kick-Off to the 2022 RMPA Season. After the CoronaVirus forced the early cancellation of the 2020 season and a Virtual season in 2021, RMPA-Con’s theme is, “Drumming Together,” celebrating the return of in-person events for 2022. As part of that celebration, this event will be FREE to all middle school, high school, and college aged percussionists, ensemble directors, instructors, and band directors—regardless of RMPA affiliation!  Clinic tracks will be provided for students as well as instructors and designers, highlighting information on technique, design, and more! Doors open at 9am, with events beginning at 10am. Lunch will be provided for all participants. The event wraps-up with a special percussion performance.
