Percussion Studio

*2020-2021 Season Information

*During the 2020-2021 season, percussionists will be assigned a primary percussion ensemble, where they will get the opportunity to work on percussion-specific repertoire that is exciting and challenging. They will be assigned/invited to specific pieces in various MYS ensembles as needed based on instrumentation and appropriate playing ability.

On Saturday morning, advanced percussion students have the opportunity to participate in both the MYSticks percussion ensemble during the first part of the morning and in Symphony Orchestra during the second half. Advanced students also have the unique chance to perform with MYSfits, MYS’s advanced, self-conducted string ensemble and with the advanced Jazz band during the concert season.

The Percussion Studio is offered to percussion students across all MYS orchestras and bands.  This class will include technique for different orchestral percussion instruments, care and maintenance of instruments, orchestral excerpts, orchestral and band etiquette, and any other relevant topics.

One year of experience required. Fill out the Registration Form and pay the fee to receive audition information.
