“So this is the kind of experience that will get you to that next level of a player. Getting to play with these higher level musicians than you just makes you grow so fast as a musician because you get thrown into these situations and you just really have to be able to play,” Dalton Petersen said.

“I love teaching and I do a lot of education work around the country. And really whenever we’re touring I try to do some things,” Coffin said.
