Introduction to percussion ensemble

This class 10 week course is designed for new percussionists (5th-8th Grade) who have had limited exposure to small or large ensembles.  Students will learn ensemble rhythm training, learn skills how what to listen for during ensemble playing, and if all goes well have a small performance in KCYPE's rehearsal hall

snare drum saturdays

Our most popular event!

Eager students will get whipped into shape in this exhaustive 60 minutes snare drum work out.  Inspired by "old-school" drum exercises, we will see who can last the longest in the literal wrist-twister challenges

Schedule to Come (probably start again in July.)


maintenance workshop

For any Student who wants to get their hands dirty, during these times we will cover drum basics literally Piece by Piece.  Our work will range from how to change your drum head, to taking apart a timpani to understand how it works.  This work will demonstrate why it's important to care for your instruments in the first place.  

Attendees may bring their own instruments for specific instruction as well
