Drum Instructor Academy

The instructor academies at the Summer Symposium provide intensive professional development for percussion and color guard instructors.

Designed by percussion teaching professionals for professionals. Headed by Symposium percussion coordinator, James Campbell, the curriculum allows you to:
  • Schedule a private arranging/show design lesson
  • Play along in a reading session as we review and critique the latest in new literature for your percussion ensemble.
  • Get the latest info on what's "hot" on the market and what you need to know to use it in your program.
  • Take an "insiders" tour of the parking lot to learn the "what, why and how" of DCI drum lines warm-up before a show.
  • Customize your own schedule to attend the elective sessions you want - Latin Percussion, Concert Percussion, Drum Set, Electronics and more!
