"Seattle Percussion Works enriches our community by building interpersonal skills, artistic courage, and a sense of belonging through world-class percussion education."
Music for All.
We believe in the power music has over an individual's self-esteem, sense of belonging, and artistic enrichment. These attributes should not be limited to those who can afford them, but rather made available to all who are interested. Seattle Percussion Works is dedicated to expanding our reach, offering scholarships, and giving back to our communities as we grow as an organization.
Percussion traditions can be found all across the globe. The multiculturalism embedded in percussion music gives us the opportunity to build a broader worldview within our students by engaging them in the various cultural styles present in our community and beyond. As Seattle Percussion Works grows, we are excited to feature artists and teachers who champion the various styles of percussion music.
Building profeciency takes time and effort. But, if we're being completely honest, making a meaningful sound on a drum can happen almost immediately. When you combine that with a classroom environment which engages aspiring musicians, no matter their skill level, we believe a meaningful and sustainable musical journey can begin.
