Percussion Studies

The percussion program at UNO covers a wide range of percussion applications. The core of the program focuses on Western classical percussion techniques (snare, timpani, mallets, multiple percussion). However, there are ample opportunities to explore other percussion applications such as world drumming, drum set, electronic percussion, orchestral techniques, and marching percussion. Whether students are majoring in music performance or music education there is a heavy emphasis placed on performing. There are numerous performing ensembles available for percussionists to participate in at UNO with the focus being, from the percussionist perspective of course, the UNO Percussion Ensemble. Percussionists at UNO find themselves in a challenging, vibrant, rewarding, and friendly environment. Recent guest artists/clinicians include Michael Burritt, John Bergamo and Hands On'semble, Brett Kuhn, Skin & Bones, David Garibaldi, Bobby Rock, Paul Bissell, Kevin Bobo, James Snell, Ben Miller, Nancy Zetlsman, Daniel Kennedy, Tom Burritt, Michael Overman, Stuart Gerbe, and Steve Smith.
