Graceland Percussion Day is the only opportunity in this area that offers instruction and performances by some of the leading percussion educators in the world at NO COST to your group, due to the generous support of the DEKKO Foundation (www.dekkofoundation.org) and their dedication to quality music education opportunities for Iowa’s students. The clinicians will focus on fundamental elements of percussion that will improve the sound and skill of your band’s percussion section. Filling out the form below indicates your interest in participating in this event; official registration to follow. This year’s exciting event features three Internationally-recognized guest artists as well as the Graceland Faculty members and the Graceland Percussion Ensemble. Each group that registers will have access to a full-day of clinics, open coaching sessions, and a recital featuring the guest artists, faculty, and students. Register by the early deadline (February 1st, 2018) to ensure that a free lunch is provided for all members of the group. Groups that are preparing percussion ensemble material for Iowa’s Small Ensemble Festival will have the opportunity to request a 45-minute coaching session with one of our guest artists (equipment provided by Graceland whenever possible; specific equipment needs addressed through official registration.)
