This five day intensive provides an opportunity for regional music educators to refresh their familiarity with the content area of percussion instruments. Music educators take a course on percussion techniques in their undergraduate studies, but can often benefit from a review of these techniques after years of teaching in the field. The intensive will provide one on one instruction with our percussion faculty on a variety of instruments, including snare drum, bass drum, xylophone, marimba, timpani, and more. Attendees will also participate in the ensemble setting by performing in a full percussion section daily, with a culminating showcase at the end of the week.
