The Marching Percussion Camp focuses on rudiments, good rudimental technique for the individual and teaches individuals ensemble awareness.  This camp is unique because individuals are placed in a group with others equal to their abilities.  This allows each individual to get the most out of the instruction from the camp.  

The Total Percussion Camp consists of either Pitched Percussion (MALLET KEYBOARDS and STEEL PAN) or Non-Pitched Percussion (DRUM SET, LATIN PERCUSSION, SAMBA BAND and CONCERT PERCUSSION).   The focus for each area will be on fundamentals, theory, improvisation, technique, reading and ensemble performance. 


Beginner, intermediate, advanced, young, old, it doesn't matter. Everyone will be placed with others of like ability.  BAND DIRECTORS are more than welcome and are encouraged to attend. 

Private lessons with the staff are available.
