UW-Eau Claire Haas Fine Arts Center
Middle and High School Band Directors
Re-Energize your percussionists with new teaching tools that are sure to improve both their technical and musical skills. Together we’ll discuss new methods of pedagogy and sharpen skills on commonly used percussion instruments.
We’ll also review the proper care for percussion instruments including basic head-changing procedures and quality of sound issues – you’ll leave with the ability to perform basic maintenance and instrument repair and be prepared to teach those skills to your students!
Dr. Crowell will provide information on solo ensemble literature and you’ll have the opportunity to demonstrate your ability to teach/direct/perform some chamber percussion literature.
