Welcome to the Percussion Studies Web Pages at Seattle Pacific University

Directed by Dan Adams, the program's emphasis is on total percussion education in correlation with SPU's Percussion Studies program and individual interests. Students are encouraged to explore all areas of percussion study and performance including snare drum, mallet keyboard, timpani, drum set, orchestral, and ethnic percussion. Students are involved in a comprehensive program of technical and musical development which includes rudiments, reading, notation, drum tuning, jazz and orchestral styles and repertoire, and solo/ensemble performance. 

SPU percussion students are exposed to a wide variety of activities outside the campus. Recent opportunities included performances at Benaroya Hall (home of the Seattle Symphony); recording sessions with Greg Adams (formerly of Tower of Power); and annual performances at the Northwest Percussion Festival.

Music majors, music minors, and non-majors are encouraged to participate in the Percussion Studies Program.
