Percussion (The percussion students will be learning how to play the snare drum and the bells).  Students will be spending the first semester on bells and the second semester on snare and bells.  The snare and bell kits are very heavy together, but students will only be bringing half of their equipment every day to lighten the load.  I strongly recommend getting the percussion packs on wheels.  They make travel a lot easier for the students.

 

  • Ross piccolo snare and bell kit (called the “Combo Kit”), Yamaha or Pearl also OK
  • 2B snare sticks, any brand
  • Tradition of Excellence, Book 1 for Combined Percussion
  • Small metronome
