Panel discussion: Achieving excellence in technique, musicianship, and performance in the string orchestra chaired by Mark Sullivan
4th Oct 2018 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
For non-percussionists, the number of percussion instruments and their requisite techniques can be overwhelming. • Highlight commonalities among ALL percussion instruments, resulting in immediate success, without getting bogged down with the intricacies of every instrument. • Drawing comparisons between technical/musical expectations for wind and percussion instruments. This will empower you to address percussionists in rehearsal in the same way you address wind players – posture, hand position/grip, fingerings/stickings, breath control/rolls, and so on.
