Take an in-depth look at: Introduction to Percussion.
The Percussion course is an exciting exploration into history of drums and percussion. Students learn about how and when drums were first invented, what they were used for and how they have grown in many interesting and diverse ways. You’ll learn how almost any object can be used as a percussion instrument. There are two basic groups or families of percussion, pitched and non-pitched – the course focuses on some of the cool pitched percussion instruments, followed by a section on un-pitched percussion instruments. You’ll be introduced to a few great percussionists of the past and some of today’s great drummers and percussionists.
