Patrick Stapleton (born 1993) was already playing flute at the age of five in a marching band. When he was ten years old, he discovered the xylophone and soon began percussion lessons. He has been studying percussion at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich since 2011, first with Adel Shalaby and later in the master class of Peter Sadlo. Stapleton performs regularly both as a soloist and in orchestras and chamber music ensembles in Germany and abroad. He has won several prizes in national and international competitions. Since 2015 he has held a scholarship from Yehudi Menuhin Live Music Now.
