Unfortunately, an in person version of PPW 2020 won't be possible this year, but I am working on some online resources to help young percussionists in our province!
Stay Tuned for more details. Drum Love!
The annual MBA Prairie Percussion Workshop is held at the Desautels Faculty of Music on the University of Manitoba campus. We are delighted to be hosted in these state of the art, brand new facilities.
This year's workshop has been suspended due to the current COVIC 19 global pandemic. The health and safety of students is our highest priority and so unfortunately we've had to make the decision to suspend in-person activities for this summer.
PPW is working on a series of online releases for August to help students refresh and regroup for their fall music classes. Stay tuned for more details!
Prairie Percussion is a source for percussion information and events in Manitoba. The main annual event is the Prairie Percussion Workshop, a skills and performance based event that is designed for middle and high school students. The workshop creates opportunities for students to work with talented educators and guest artists in all of the major areas of percussion.
The goal of this website is to create a hub for percussion middle school, high school and university students, educators and professionals. The heart of the organization started with the workshop but the larger goal is to begin establishing other events. I would love to work with teachers to help reinforce their technical skills and also to teach some basic maintenance and upkeep skills. I plan to connect students with private teachers and to create masterclasses.
From Concert Percussion to Drum Set, from World Percussion in all of its many cultures and styles to classical Marimba. Diversity is one of the aspects I find the most exciting about percussion. My goal in creating this site is to help students find teachers, help teachers find resources and help all interested parties find concerts, masterclasses, and events.
