Indiana Percussion Association Clinic Day 2016

ipa-clinic-day-header

The 2016 IPA Clinic Day will feature artists with various percussive specialities. All students, directors, and educators will be able to choose between clinics and masterclasses throughout the day. They have also opened up one of the only wind clinics and cymbal clinics thanks to the X Academy and Seavine. The 2016 clinic day will truly have something for everyone! Any further questions can be directed to: president@indianapercussion.org

Please note that the cymbal and winds clinics are more expensive than the percussion clinics. There are more items given in these clinics and will be geared more in a teaching masterclass setting. Please plan to bring and instrument for these.

Highlights

BYOS will be back again this year with a hands on masterclass in how to perform many of their stick tricks. They will be debuting their ABC’s of stick tricks that explores a new musical language in which each student is challenged to learn in order to communicate new ideas with one another. BYOS will also be giving a group clinic at the end of the day with Amir on drumset and quads.
