Concert Percusssion for Music Educatiors

This hands-on workshop is appropriate for elementary through high school music educators (instrumental and vocal) who work with percussionists. There is no pre-requisite for this course. Participants will study percussion instruments and playing techniques as used in concert band, orchestral, and percussion ensemble settings, including marimba, xylophone, glockenspiel, vibraphone, chimes, snare drum, timpani, and the various concert percussion “accessories” (tambourine, triangle, bass drum, cymbals, etc.), and will play in a band/orchestra percussion section and percussion ensemble (we will rehearse an array of pieces for grade school through high school percussion ensemble). The course is designed to help you better instruct and motivate your percussionists in private or group lessons, in a percussion ensemble setting, or from the podium. Percussion instrument maintenance, tuning, and repair issues will also be addressed. Please bring one pair of snare drum sticks (Innovative Percussion “IP-CL-1” model is recommended). LIMITED TO 13 PARTICIPANTS
