How to Write for Percussion (with Chihiro Shibayama)

Versatile Percussionist, Teacher & Part-Time Librarian, Chihiro Shibayama will share tips on how to effectively use percussion instruments.

Percussionists easily play over 20 instruments in a given musical. They can play timpani to support the bassline, xylophone to punctuate a melody, congas to provide a groove, and just about any sound effects that other musicians can’t cover. The only catch is, there is usually just one of them! In this class, Chihiro will guide you through how to effectively utilize a percussionist to enhance your music. She will also cover good notation practice that percussionists would appreciate.
