This percussion techniques class will cover all techniques required to play successfully in a classical or orchestral performance. Refine your technique in a group setting reviewing the fundamentals and learning the advanced techniques of snare drum, timpani, mallets, bass drum, cymbals, triangle, hand drums and more. 

This class will allow students to focus on techniques not often covered in lessons, and allow students to refine their technique with others. Students will learn to be comfortable and confident with all auxiliary percussion and hand drums, preparing them for any part that may come across their music stand. 

Techniques in this class will benefit participation in school ensembles, pit orchestras, jazz bands, percussion ensemble, and allow the student to be comfortable in any musical setting in their music program.
