Tools for a Comprehensive Concert Percussion Curriculum

  • thumbnail for Patrick Roulet
  • Successful percussion pedagogy depends on a sequential course of study that introduces students to fundamental musical and technical concepts in a logical order. A thorough percussion curriculum should emphasize methods and materials that reinforce fundamental concepts of percussion performance. This clinic will cover the most important components of a comprehensive percussion curriculum from organization and equipment to instructional methods and materials.
