The Oberlin Conservatory of Music is pleased to announce the 14th summer Percussion Institute to be held on the spacious campus of Oberlin College. Students are invited to attend a stimulating and exciting week of masterclasses, clinics, hands-on workshops, recitals, and lectures in a relaxed and productive environment. This promises to be a comprehensive curriculum covering the full range of the percussionist’s and timpanist’s art and will prove to be both musically as well as intellectually stimulating. Our faculty this year represents the finest talent and the widest breath of experience in the world of percussion.
Students at all levels can look forward to a busy, yet relaxed, productive atmosphere where there will be opportunity for personal attention by the distinguished faculty. The clinics and workshops promise to be in-depth examinations of percussion and timpani in every detail. Participants who want to perform in masterclasses are invited to audition on the day of registration with no pressure to perform. Private lesson with the faculty will be available for an additional fee and students are welcome to share lessons.
Students may arrange to receive one hour of college credit at no additional cost except for a $6 handling fee for forms completed in Oberlin.
