About the Session
FUNdamentals – Complimentary Percussion
Often times, the complimentary percussion instruments are overlooked and thought of as “accessories.” These instruments are an important part of the concert percussion section and Keith Aleo will provide a practical approach to successfully playing these instruments. There will be material to play during the clinic and to use in practice sessions after.
