What to Expect

When it comes to learning a percussion instrument, it’s important to start with the basics. Students can expect to learn the basic hand techniques, as well as how to move around the instrument. Once you’ve gotten a handle on the basics, your ability to truly express yourself through your instrument will flourish!

Drum and percussion lessons are specifically designed for the learning style and desires of each student. They include instruction on any or all of the following instruments:

  • Drum set
  • Snare drum
  • Keyboard percussion (marimba, glockenspiel, xylophone, etc.)
  • Timpani
  • Multi-percussion
  • Any other auxiliary percussion instruments (bass drum, triangle, cymbals, tambourine, bongos, congas, etc…)

Depending on the student’s desires, the lessons can be geared towards solo, orchestral, and/or band repertoire. Emily can help prepare students for All-State auditions as well as marching band too.
