Registration for MPS 2017 is open! This year's camp will be held Jul 29-Aug 2, 2017. Register today!
The perfect camp for your high school and middle school/junior high percussionists! We will again hold our camp in conjunction with the George N. Parks Drum Major Academy. 2017 marks our 27th year with the UMass camp.
The program offered by the Mobile Percussion Seminar is carefully designed to develop the mental and physical aspects of percussion performance through Technique, Reading, and Musicianship. Emphasis is placed on establishing a positive attitude, leadership skills, and a uniform playing style.
Fundamentals of technique, reading, and musicianship are taught for snare drum, multi-tenors, bass drum, and hand cymbals. Battery percussion students are assigned to a group according to their ability level.
Students work throughout the camp as a separate ensemble and with the full marching ensemble. Focus is spent on technique and reading fundamentals.
