Being a member of a World Class percussion is a no easy feat. A vast amount of training is required…physically, mentally, and musically. To better help our fans understand the process, we asked our students to sum up their training in one sentence. Below is a selection of their replies.
I’ve learned a lot about music, how to take care of my physical health, and overall how to be a better person, all thanks to a great staff.
The training associated with winter percussion has been the most intensive activity I have ever been part of as we play music, strive for perfection, and perform to the audience all while putting it on the move.
The most important things I have received from winter percussion training are life skills, such as personal accountability to improve myself mentally and physically in order to be successful at whatever I do.
The most important things I have received from WP are attention to detail, and how to take care of my body better so I can always be at my best during rehearsal, show days, and life overall.
Winter Percussion is a very intense program that trains you both mentally and physically, which gives you overall life skills and improves you as a person.
In winter percussion, I have learned not only to come out of my shell but to dedicate lots of time and energy into one skill until it is done right.
Hard work and dedication is the key to succeeding in life, not only in WP but also out in the world.
