9th Grade Prep Camp!

I’m happy to announce that this summer (June 2017) I will be hosting several 3 day camps specifically for 8th grade percussionists looking to continue with music in high school. The camps will cover many basic skills that every 9th grade percussion student should know! I’m excited to be coordinating the material for the camp with several local high school band directors.

The camp will cover the following topics and more:

  • Timpani tuning
  • Snare rudiments
  • Major/Minor scales
  • Mallet sight reading
  • Four mallet technique
  • Marching audition music and process
  • All-state tryout requirement
  • Basic drum set grooves and jazz band audition tips
  • …and more!
