Percussion Know-How for Music Educators

This comprehensive, hands-on workshop is appropriate for elementary through high school music educators who teach percussionists, and covers the same material as The Hartt School's Percussion Methods Course. Participants will learn percussion instruments and playing techniques for concert band, orchestral, jazz, percussion ensemble, and world music settings. A vast library of music and method books will be made available to all participants, as will an extensive instrument collection. Participants will play snare drum, timpani, marimba, xylophone, cymbals, gongs, tambourine, triangle, hand drums, steel drums, drum set, and dozens of other percussion instruments, and will perform in a percussion ensemble, steel drum band, African, Cuban, and Brazilian rhythm sections, and an orchestral percussion section. Participants will learn to better educate and motivate percussion students, and to maintain, tune, or repair school percussion instruments. Individual needs will be addressed. We will provide a pair of snare drum sticks (Innovative Percussion "IP-CL1" model is recommended). LIMITED TO 13 PARTICIPANTS
