Percussion Revolution

  • thumbnail for She-e Wu
  • This clinic will discuss the challenges that music educators face when dealing with percussionists. How could we elevate the percussion playing for every orchestra and band in this country? What does a great percussion section sound like? What does a bad percussion section sound like? Tone, instruments, mallet/sticks choices, balance, color, articulation, style, and repertoire will be discussed. The Northwestern University Percussion Ensemble will demonstrate, with Mallory Thompson conducting.
