Percussion Studio


Percussion students study primarily with Professor Michael Burritt (Internationally recognized percussion soloist and chamber musician, recording artist and composer.) Students are also provided the opportunity to have lessons with our distinguished adjunct percussion, Charles Ross (Timpanist with the Rochester Philharmonic), James Ross (Percussionist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra), and Rich Thompson, (Drum Set faculty for the Eastman Jazz Department and former drummer with the Count Basie Band). This extraordinary group of artist-teachers provides the Eastman students with one of the most prestigious and diverse percussion faculties in the world.
