The Beyond the Back of the Band Room Camp is an "immersive” experience for percussion students to gain experience performing in a concert percussion ensemble setting where they might not have the availability to do so in their schools band program. Students will be exposed to various genres and styles of percussion music ranging from classical, to jazz, and West African drumming. As an integral part of the experience, students will be arranged into ensembles according to ability and will perform a concert at the end of the camp. In addition to the performance preparation, Masterclasses will be taught throughout the week on topics such as, concert snare drum technique, timpani tuning, auxiliary percussion, and North Carolina All-State Solo preparations.
