Concert Percussion for Music Educators

This hands-on workshop is appropriate for elementary through high school music educators who work with percussionists. It can be taken independently, or as a follow-up to “Percussion Know-How for Music Educators” (i.e., 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. We will provide one pair of snare drum sticks (Innovative Percussion “IP-CL-1” model). LIMITED TO 13 PARTICIPANTS
