"We are all percussionists!"

"Boum-Percussion ACADEMY" 2022 SOON TO BE ANNOUNCED!!

3 teachers - 4 days - 5 nations!!

Enjoy impressions from the first edition of our "Boum-Percussion ACADEMY" 2021 in cooperation with Theaterhaus Stuttgart.Participants from the age of 15 to 35 formed a diverse group of motivated percussionists from 5 different nations.

In Masterclasses, individual lessons,talking-rounds and warm-up sessions, we focused on timpani, solo-percussion such as set-up, marimba, vibraphone and snaredrum, orchestral percussion like tambourine, cymbals and were preparing the participants for audition performances.
Different personalities, levels and preferences created a fantastic atmosphere, where all participants were able to show themselves in their best way and profit from each other and their experiences too. What a great environment to break down barriers and dogmas, free the minds and enjoy being a musician, while working detailed and focused on the individual progress! Because:
We are all percussionists!!

•  Stay tuned for the next edition!! Join us and create a space of inspiration & joy and exchange with motivated percussionists from all around the globe!  •
