The UNT Keyboard Percussion Symposium is a five-day seminar designed to serve high school, college and professional level keyboard percussionists. Activities include private and group lessons with world class instructors, master classes, clinics, student and faculty performances, and technique labs focused on all aspects of keyboard percussion performance including grip methods (Traditional, Stevens, Burton and Six-Mallet grip) and extended performance technique. High school participants will play in keyboard percussion ensembles directed by Symposium faculty. There are separate and joint sessions for a high school and college/professional tracks.
This year’s symposium will include a special jazz vibraphone track in which students will have special lessons and master classes on improvisation and vibraphone technique with jazz vibraphone virtuoso Ed Smith. Students who choose this track will also attend master classes, clinics and performances of the entire Symposium faculty in addition to studies with professor Smith.
Faculty includes: Christopher Deane (UNT College of Music - Symposium co-director), Dr. Brian Zator (Texas A&M University-Commerce - Symposium co-director), Pius Cheung (Oregon), She-e Wu (Northwestern University), and Sandi Rennick (Santa Clara Vanguard).
