Percussion Studio

The Lamar University Percussion Studio is a vibrant, talented and supportive community of musicians. With nearly 30 percussion majors and minors, the goal of the LU percussion curriculum is to develop:

  • Musicianship
  • Technical proficiency
  • Cultural awareness
  • Technological literacy in both performance and pedagogical fields

Here at Lamar University, we have everything you need to become a complete percussionist. Regardless of degree concentration, the undergraduate student will maintain regular study of snare drum, keyboard percussion and additional areas based on individual goals and needs within the enriching lesson structure.

The LU Percussion Studio provides professional-level opportunities and experiences for all students that foster growth through self-discipline, creativity and entrepreneurship.
