Percussion is a very exciting major here at NYYM!  Percussion is not one single instrument, but a “family of instruments”. 

A snare drum, drum set, tambourine, triangle, bongos, xylophone, marimba and timpani are just a few examples of what Percussion Majors learn.  Percussionists these instruments, and so many more. 

You may be wondering, “what is a marimba? and timpani?”...  Below are some images of our students on various instruments that might not be as well known as others.

Percussion is one of our most popular majors here at NYYM.  Studying percussion and/or drum set can provide a solid background in music.  Learning how to read and recognize rhythms, reading notes just as any other instrument would, developing coordination, furthering the ability to concentrate and multitask, all help students gain a fundamental understanding of music which can help them learn a second instrument that may be more challenging, as well as help students progress in their school work, home work and exams.

All of our private lessons students receive a well rounded music education, incorporating Music Theory, Ear Training, Music History and Music Technology.  We also offer Music Therapy for students with Special Needs. 

For students that are considering pursuing music in junior high school, high school, college or professionally, we also have a specialized Audition Preparation Program.  We work extra hours as needed to make sure our students are prepared, holding mock auditions and video recordings to guide them through the process.
