Group Percussion Classes

Whether you are new to the bass or looking to expand your repertoire, our group classes provide a community environment to learn new skills and take your practice to the next level. Beginners can learn the basics of hand percussion instruments from all over the world in our core classes, and both hand percussion and drum set players can learn how to play in a band while playing some of their favorite tunes in our unique ensemble classes.

(Note: our group classes run in 8-week “sessions” through the year, so classes may already be running. Check to see when new classes will be posted here.)
