Six Renowned Faculty Members
One World-Class Seminar
The Ted Atkatz Percussion Seminar is a week-long workshop dedicated to bringing modern, innovative, and cutting-edge knowledge to percussionists across disciplines. From orchestral excerpts to drumset, marimba, world percussion, ensemble performance, and much more, TAPS covers a wide range of topics and essential skills invaluable to the contemporary music scene.
Participants work closely with faculty in a friendly and collaborative environment through a variety of hands-on workshops, masterclasses, private lessons, ensemble rehearsals, and mock auditions. We encourage an upbeat communal experience, and participants will additionally have the opportunity to join in a variety of extracurricular activities and social hangouts.
Each seminar culminates in an ensemble performance hosted by students and faculty and comprised of pieces rehearsed throughout the week. Additionally, all participants are invited to compete in a mock audition for cash prizes, instruments, and equipment provided by our generous sponsors.
