Required Implements / Accessories
To properly study and perform percussion solo and ensemble literature it is necessary for percussion students to acquire a wide variety of sticks, mallets, and instruments. For the serious percussion student collecting these items begins early in their career and will continue throughout their professional life. Since these items help create specific sounds and will allow you to interpret music in an artistic way it is important to collect professional quality gear; a good instrument or piece of equipment is an investment that will last a lifetime. Some students find it practical to give their family and relatives a link to a "wish list" at Steve Weiss Music to use for gift ideas for birthdays and holidays.
