The Carolinas Percussion Studio is another very popular choice at DSA and Conservatory. Students learn the fundamentals of percussion, with a focus on both playing for a traditional Salvation Army brass band as well as drumset for contemporary praise and worship groups. The class performs original pieces for a percussion ensemble at DSA Graduation and Conservatory Graduation, as well as playing in the percussion section of the brass band classes. Below you can find some excellent resources for all skill levels, focusing on the snare drum. You can also follow the NSC Percussion Facebook page for more videos and information from your instructors.


Over the summer our DMD, Nathan Cole, and our percussion instructor, Aaron Jackson, led a number of virtual workshops for percussionists of all experience levels. You can find these videos below, as well as links to other great resources.
