year in review 2018 percussion education

Thank you for your continued support and here’s to more percussion education in the coming year. I appreciate everyone who supported Percussion Education’s Amazon Wish List. It is always great to hear from you. I haven’t posted as many updates this year, but I do have some announcements coming this summer. Stay tuned. Please leave a comment below and say hi. Here’s the Percussion Education Year in Review posts.  

1) What is Proper Stage Etiquette? Inspired by a masterclass by Barbara Matthews, this is definitely a post to share with young percussionists. [Note: This was number 4 in 2017]

2) Fractalia by Owen Clayton Condon. A great piece by former Third Coast Percussionist Owen Clayton Condon. [Another Top 5 form 2017]

3) Episode 026: Composing using the Rudiments This video, originally posted on YouTube in 2014, talks about combining rudiments into a composition. I use this in my percussion methods course.

4) Marimba Mallet Wrapping 101 Ever wanted to learn how to wrap your own mallets? Check out this video!

5) So You’re Going to be a Percussion Major… A classic article from my days with DrumChattr.

Happy New Year!
