Percussion

THREE CONCENTRATIONS FOR STUDENT PERCUSSIONISTS:

Marching Percussion students will be grouped by experience level for maximum learning.

Symphonic Percussion students experience a wide variety of concert percussion.

Drum Set is part of the Jazz Division – students work with drum set faculty and perform with the Symposium Jazz Bands.

At the Music for All Summer Symposium Percussion Division, immerse yourself in percussion, with sessions that include Concert Percussion, Rudimental Drumming, Drum Set, Electronics, Hand Drumming, and more. Music for All offers tools that will allow YOU to achieve peak performance. Hone your craft, by working with some of the current “rock stars” of the Marching, Concert Percussion, Drum Set, and Hand Drumming World! This year, Music for All is pleased to welcome back Carolina Crown, corps-in-residence, to the 2019 Summer Symposium. Percussion students will work with Carolina Crown teaching staff, view the Corps in rehearsal and enjoy a DCI Central Indiana drum corps show.

What are students saying about Percussion at America’s Camp?

I will never forget going to MFA Camp my senior year, it had such a great impact on me for the better!

Even with all of the crazy tricks & skills I learned, the environment alone was the most mind-blowing part.

With the staff’s infallible support, I get to go home a stronger, smarter, and more confident leader.

Parent/Booster Institute

Music for All’s parent/booster training and advocacy programs and resources are key elements in Music for All’s vision to be a catalyst to ensure that every child across America has the opportunity and access to participate in music making in his or her scholastic environment.

What Should Your Child Bring?

June weather in Indiana is often unpredictable. Historical averages for this area range from 60°F-90°F and often include high humidity. Please keep that in mind when packing for camp.

Staying in Touch with your Student

The Music for All Headquarters staff is unable to receive and deliver messages to students by phone, unless an emergency requires immediately delivery. If you wish to speak with your child during the week, plan your calling schedule before your child leaves home.

Supervision and Health Info

Your child’s safety is our utmost priority. While at camp, your child is required to attend all classes, meals, concerts, and nightly floor meetings, where attendance is taken.
