After the 1992 season, RJ decided to pursue other interests, however, the passion for the performing arts never faded away. In 2003, RJ joined the 5 time DCA World Champions Empire Statesmen from Rochester New York. While performing with “Statesmen”, he performed one season with the colourguard and the remainder of his tenure as a part of the brass ensemble. There he played soprano and baritone. 2010 would be his last season performing with the “Statesmen before relocating to Edmonton where he joined Impact Performing Arts as a volunteer before being appointed by the Board of Directors, as Director of Impact Performing Arts Association.
Mike has played on stage with Alessia Cara for the Juno Awards in 2016 and was also in the 2018 Grandstand Show as a flying drummer. Over the years, Mike has had the privilege of studying under Zach Schlicher, James Sparling, and Colin Mcnutt. Mike prides himself on his approach in effecting positive change in communities through musical excellence.
Marlouie’s instructional experience began when he joined the Edmonton Saber Marching Band and taught music theory/ear training and brass playing. He then went on to teach the Cadet organization in Vernon, BC.
Marlouie has also studied with, and takes lessons from, William Dimmer (former 2nd Trumpet Chair, ESO), Robin Doyon (current 1st Trumpet Chair, ESO), Dr. Josh Davies (trumpet professor, University of Lethbridge), Gareth Jones (Adjunct Professor, University of Calgary), Wayne Bergeron (Los Angeles Recording Artist).
He’s been fortunate enough to study under extraordinary musicians and teachers such as Sean Phelan, Scott Carr, and Mark Trulson. His teaching experience started as section leader at Impact for 3 years before joining the instructional staff. He also has some experience teaching a high school marching band. He hopes to instill skills that will benefit members in music and life, such as a positive attitude, attention to detail and a drive for excellence.
