Hello fellow drummers, vibists, marimbists and percussionists. There is still time to sign up for The Berklee Summer Percussion Festival which runs from June 18th through the 22nd in Boston, MA.
Whether you are new to the world of percussion or a player looking for new ideas; whether you are a hand percussionist, a drum set specialist, a marimbist, a vibraphonist, a total percussionist, or an educator, the Berklee Percussion Festival will give you a new edge on rhythm, improvisation, percussion craft, effects, sound, and performance skills.
The Berklee Percussion Festival emphasizes practical playing experience through a variety of performance activities, in-class performances, ensembles, and master classes for percussionists and educators interested in all aspects of percussion in a variety of styles.
You may concentrate on one of the following styles: Afro-Cuban drum set or hand percussion, Brazilian drum set or hand percussion, West African percussion, fusion drum set, funk drum set, jazz drum set, rock drum set, marimba, vibraphone, total percussion, or steelpan.
This year’s faculty will include drummers Mark Walker, Sergio Bellotti and Skip Hadden along with mallet specialists Ed Saindon, Gustavo Agatiello and Nancy Zeltsman.
