River School World Percussion is a performing ensemble music course focused on World Music from cultures throughout the world. This class is directed by teacher and musician John Hannaford.
We learn the music and instrumentation from other cultures, through the musical traditions of those cultures. Our ensemble pieces contain many percussion parts, typically 5 to 8.
Another focus of our class is to provide our students with an opportunity to develop working team skills, to develop accountability to self and others, to build confidence in self, and in community performance.
