MMED 675 Percussion for the Non-Percussionist

3 credits 45.0 hours
600 level graduate course

Specifically designed for the band director or music teacher who is not a percussionist, this course will review basic skill sets in each of the primary instrument families, present a variety of teaching strategies and offer new insights into passing this knowledge onto your student drummers. Writing for these instruments at the elementary and intermediate level will be explored. What to bring: Bring a pair of concert snare drum sticks (Vic Firth SD1 or equivalent), a practice pad with stand, a set of 4 matched marimba mallets and a pair of general purpose timpani mallets.

This course is not repeatable for credit.
