Are you playing in a percussion group?
Are you interested in original and exclusive arrangements and choreography?
Would you like to improve and extend your technical and rhythmical skills?
Or do you just want fresh stimulation and motivation for your work?

Rhythmical and choreographical originality –
that is what makes percussion groups so fascinating and attractive!

In rehearsals, therefore, it gets more and more important
to find new rhythmical and choreographical concepts
in order to improve the performance of a percussion group.

Here you will find a big selection of themes,
which you can put together individually.
During the workshop the arrangements and choreographies
will be designed exclusively for your group.

This workshop offers an innovative concept for percussion groups:
It enables participants to develop new creative ideas for the
technical-rhythmical range as well as for the organisation and choreography
of percussion groups for performances on stage or other events.
