Just like learning the Piano or Violin, you can also learn Percussion!
We don't just hit things and make 'noise' but we play the instrument and make a beautiful 'sound'. Learning how to handle a range of instruments and produce proper sound at the right time, is an endless challenge!
Variety of percussion instruments!
All the instruments, sticks, mallets and beaters are provided at the class.
There is a good range of the percussion gear from Tauranga City Silver Band, including;
Bass Drum, Snare Drum, Cymbal, Xylophone, Glockenspiel, Vibraphone, Timpani, Tam-tam, Roto-tom, Tom-tom, Triangle, Tambourine, wood block, cowbell, whip, vibraslap, ratchet and more!
From beginner to Advanced players!
All the parts are made or arranged by Yoshiko, and assigned to suit the level of each player.
Also you get to play different instruments, as you are learning them!
Perform in Orchestra or Brass Band!
It is great fun to perform in large ensembles!
You will get oppotunities to play in Bay of Plenty Symphonia, City Silver Band or Youth Philharmonic Tauranga (under 18). We can work on the pieces in the class and be ready for the concerts!
Annual Percussion Ensemble Concert!
At the end of each year, we present a class concert for public, performing percussion ensemble pieces. The concert is followed by fun refreshments! Free entry, so invite your family and friends and show them what you can do!
