Co-Coordinator, Percussion Department, George Mason University School of Music
The percussion studies program at George Mason University provides aspiring students a comprehensive educational experience. All students study with a percussion faculty who possess impressive performance and educational credentials. Students are trained in virtually every aspect of percussion performance, including orchestral and solo percussion, chamber music, timpani, drum set, steel pan, afro cuban, and marching percussion. Students eventually rotate through every professors studio, thus providing a complete and well rounded educational experience. Major renovations and a substantial investment in new facilities and equipment offer ample instruments and practice facilities. Our prime location, minutes from Washington DC, allows students a chance to hear the very best of live music, from Blues Alley to the Kennedy Center, every day. Recent tours have included performances at the Virginia Music Educators Conference and PASIC 2016. If you want more information on our department click here
Our department has a wide variety of percussion faculty to meet the needs of each of our students. All of the faculty members are not only active in our teaching, but each of us continue our performance work locally, nationally and internationally. Students can actively watch and gain insight in seeing GMU faculty perform in such venues as the Kennedy Center, Wolf Trap for the Performing Arts, Blues Alley and the National Cathedral.
