During high school in Burlington, New Jersey, Gillece played drums and percussion in concert and marching band; he studied vibraphone while pursuing his master’s degree at New York’s SUNY Purchase. “What made me lean towards vibes was that it put you in the front of the ensemble, and you’re not only playing a drum part, but you’re also learning composition,” he says. “It was an opportunity to explore melody and harmony that I wasn’t getting from general percussion.”
