The percussion program at UNCG is designed to transform students into marketable, professional musicians by offering instruction and experiences that develop musicianship, creativity and professionalism. Diverse opportunities in ensembles and private lessons give students the broad base of knowledge needed to become well-rounded twenty-first century percussionists. In addition, each student’s plan of study is carefully and thoughtfully individualized to align with their long-term career goals. The UNCG percussion program is housed in an expansive, modern facility that was designed specifically for percussionists. It includes a vast and comprehensive inventory of percussion equipment, which gives students the opportunity to foster their musical and professional abilities. Beyond campus, the Triad area of North Carolina offers students ample professional performing and teaching opportunities. UNCG percussion graduates have found success as public, private and collegiate educators, drum set artists, freelance musicians, recording artists, composers/arrangers and percussion soloists.
