If you love beats, you'll love this camp. The Summer Percussion Project is a drumming and percussion camp in the style of second line and drumline. Expect a mix of fun, movement, energy and a focus on proper technique. Director Tony Sodano will work with you to make sure your grip is spot on and your time is like a metronome. You'll play snare, bass drum, cymbals, auxiliary percussion, drumset and mallets. 

Camp curriculum covers Concert Percussion, Swing Rhythms, Drumset Basics/Coordination, Intro to Drumline, and much more.
