EKU Percussion

The Eastern Kentucky University Percussion Studio offers one of the most comprehensive percussion educations in the region. Instruction is offered in performance techniques on marching percussion, marimba, vibraphone, xylophone, concert snare drum, timpani, and the various accessory instruments. In addition, non-western percussion instruction in Afro-Cuban, African, Brazilian, Indian, and Caribbean drumming styles are also part of the curriculum. Our EKU marching band drum line, EKU percussion ensemble, and EKU steel band provide many opportunities to apply these techniques in a performance setting. The studio is typically comprised of two or more graduate students/teaching assistants, and 15 – 25 undergraduate percussionists.
