*Everything You Wish You Remembered from Percussion Methods
Are you a band director whose primary instrument is not percussion? Do you regret not taking better notes in your percussion methods class? This clinic will provide valuable material that gives you the tools to get the best sounds possible from your instruments and percussionists. I address common low hanging fruit to improve a percussion section including stance, instrument heights, proper stroke, playing techniques, and mallet/instrument choice with a handout to take away and reference.
Learner Outcome 1
Participants will be able to make educated purchasing decisions on quality instruments and implements for their percussion section.
Learner Outcome 2
Participants will learn how to see common percussion technique problems without leaving the podium.
Learner Outcome 3
Participants will learn how to guide their students to get the best possible sound out of their percussion instruments.
