Percussion Ensemble

Ensemble de percussions

Come and develop a good rhythmic base while sharing the pleasure of playing music in a group!

We offer you a workshop in which we will work on your sense of pulsation and your rhythmic vocabulary. To do this, we will use various percussion instruments. By the end of the session, you will have improved your sense of rhythm and acquired a basic knowledge of several percussions.

Each class will begin with simple polyrhythm exercises (2 against 3) and rhythmic games integrating counter-rhythms. There will also be learning the basic percussion rhythms that we will be using (3-3-2, 3/8 etc). The second portion of the course will put our learnings into practice in the development of ensemble pieces that will be presented during student concerts.
