Event Information

Tickets will be $8.00 at the door for all adults.

Children under 10 will be admitted free of charge.

All interested people are invited to attend. This event is informal; people can come and go as desired. The Rudimental Day of Percussion will be approximately 10am - 7pm. Some concessions are sold at the school; people should bring money for lunch.

Each registered high school drumline perform for around 25 minutes; the clinicians will work with each group towards the end of this allotted time. Registration is $200; this will cover the drumline members and staff.

All audience members / drumlines are invited to work with each section of the MSU Drumline (snares / tenors / bass / cymbals) for a part of the day. Please bring your own instruments / sticks / mallets. No registration required!

We will have a solo / ensemble festival!  Students can play a solo (any percussion instrument; snare, marimba, tenor, bass, pandeiro, etc.) and get feedback from a clinician! At least one performer / group will be chosen to perform on stage towards the end of the event.   Please fill out the solo / ensemble registration form below if you would like to participate!

We will also have a rudiment table. This was very successful last year! We will have MSU Drumline members with a list of rudiments at this table.  Students can then try to play these rudiments to achieve levels.  The 40 “essential” rudiments are listed here:  

Door prizes are awarded throughout the day!
