Summer Percussion Camp

We have expanded our Summer Percussion camp offerings to include a 4-day mallet keyboard clinic, which will focus on 4-mallet technique on marimba. Other topics to include two-mallet playing, vibraphone, chorale style playing, and composition. We will again offer our successful "Chop Shop" - now a 3-day intensive focus on marching snare and tenor drumming, perfect to get your chops in shape for the upcoming marching season!
