Percussion Class

You are invited to attend SOGO’s Percussion Class!

The first class with Mr. Fox will be from 5:30 -7:15 PM on Monday, September 16 in the Washington MS Band room.

The goal is to have 4-8 percussionists in the class to keep it small enough to give individualized instruction by our professional percussionist/Teaching Artist but large enough to have a high-quality ensemble experience.

Students who have at least 2 years of percussion experience (or by permission) are welcome to attend. (more…)
