DAILY COURIER (PRESCOTT, ARIZONA) -- For the occasion, percussionist Stan Gibb has created the “Onomatopoeic March,” for percussion and band. To refresh your memory from high school English class, an “onomatopoeia” is the word that means a word coined to imitate a sound. Some examples are “meow,” “cuckoo” and “boom.”
Gibb came to Prescott after an outstanding career as a music educator in California and Oklahoma. He holds Bachelor of Music and Master of Arts degrees from San Francisco State College and a Doctor of Musical Arts from North Texas State University.
