Workshop for school-aged and adult percussionists.
The workshop will investigate percussion ensemble concepts through the study of drumline repertoire and instrumentation (see video below for an example of this style). Drumline features a lot of unison playing (multiple people playing the same or similar parts) and the skills developed in this style can be applied to percussion playing in any ensemble setting.
Guest artist - Gary France
The cost for this four-hour workshop is $50 ($40 for Con students).
To get the most out of the workshop, participants should bring their own sticks, practise pad with stand, and hearing protection.
Due to the practical nature of this workshop, places are be limited.
Not sure what Drumline is? Check out this video for an example of a high-level drumline ensemble. It will probably take more than a four-hour workshop with Gary for you to sound this good but we all have to start somewhere!
