TAPS LA Music Festival 2022

TAPS LA is a two-week intensive program for serious percussion students led by some of the top players in the field.

This will be the highest standard of percussion education, with a curriculum that teaches community leadership alongside artistry.

8 collegiate or post-collegiate participants will apprentice with our faculty as they perform chamber music, take lessons, attend masterclasses, take mock auditions, and participate in community outreach activities together.

All invited participants will receive free tuition and housing.

TAPS LA will take place in Long Beach, CA from June 12 - 26
