Many of the typical performance shortcomings of student percussionists center around sustained tones. This webinar clearly and simply identifies what those are and how to avoid these shortcomings with proper teaching. You’ll learn step by step through Michael Faris’ discussion and demonstration on eight key percussion instruments – snare drum, tambourine, triangle, suspended cymbals, bass drum, crash cymbals, xylophone, and timpani.
Prepare to either type your notes into the Word.doc or Google Doc and save the changes, or write in your notes by hand into a printed copy.
As you view the webinar, we encourage you to take notes as you go along. Feel free to stop the recording and rewind as needed.
Choose either format; Word Doc or Google Doc. After considering the key points that you wish to implement, describe the point in the ACTION BOX select a date for the initial implementation. Then, select a date that you plan to review and assess the success of the implementation.
An 80% score or better will result in a Certificate of Completion emailed to the address you provide. Those scoring less than 80% will be allowed to retake the quiz.
