  • Garden State Percussion holding musical instruments


The virtuosic Garden State Percussion Trio literally marches in with drum loads of fun, humor, and information about the art, acoustics, and history of percussion instruments. Students play along, joining demonstrations of the xylophone, vibraphone, timpani, and drums as they learn about different kinds of percussion and the sounds that each instrument makes. Students discover that they can create sound on household objects as well as traditional instruments, and how movie and sound effects are created with percussion.
