Clinic Presentation at 2018 South Carolina Day of Percussion
Here's audio taken from my presentation at the 2018 PAS SC Chapter Day of Percussion event held at Lexington HS. For percussionists, the health of our hands is vital. Healthy hands allow us to perform the most nuanced of musical passages and the most demanding technical excerpts. Unfortunately, there's a lot of misinformation out there about what's "good" for your hands and what isn't. In this episode, we explore the variables of grip stroke, tension, and more that lead to healthier hands. If you like this episode, SHARE it with your band director and percussion friends!
