Objectives
To Achieve “True Greatness” or “Mastery” as a musician studying percussion, there are Five things you need: A Great Attitude, Passion, Commitment, Sacrifice, and a Hard Work Ethic.

Classes
Members of the percussion studio take a one-hour private lesson each week and participate in a group studio class each Friday afternoon. These musicians also form the core membership of the percussion ensemble. Each semester concludes with a final “jury” performance exam for a panel of music faculty. Students celebrate their achievements with a public recital during the last semester of their degree program.
