World Percussion and Drum-Set Survey for Music Educators

This hands-on workshop is appropriate for instrumental and vocal music educators at all levels who work with percussionists. It can be taken independently, or as a follow-up to Percussion Know-How for Music Educators. Participants will play in various traditional, folkloric percussion ensembles, including an Afro-Cuban salsa group, a Brazilian samba school, a West African drumming ensemble, a Middle Eastern hand drumming ensemble, and a Caribbean steel drum band. In addition, participants will learn strategies for teaching beginning and intermediate drum-set techniques, and will learn to play various styles, including rock, jazz, Cuban, Caribbean, and Brazilian. The course is designed to prepare you to start your own Cuban, Brazilian, African, Caribbean, or Middle Eastern percussion ensembles at any level, to add percussion accompaniment to your choral or instrumental repertoire, to enhance your general music classes, and to help you better educate and motivate your drum-set students. We will provide a pair of drum-set sticks (Innovative Percussion "IP-ES1" model is recommended), and recommend one pair of brushes (Regal Tip "583R" model). LIMITED TO 13 PARTICIPANTS.
