Percussion Videos

Note for Grown-Ups:

These are clips from the very well done video by the US Army field band.  In them, techniques, (which are the same as taught in class) for playing each particular instrument are demonstrated.

The idea that “they are instruments, not toys” serves as a focus for approaching an instrument and the goal of musicianship for each of my students.
