  • NYU Percussion Virtual Masterclass Series

    by Rhythm Scene Staff | Mar 23, 2020

    The NYU Percussion Program has moved to remote coursework for the remainder of the semester. Instead of viewing this as a negative, we have turned it into a unique experience and opportunity to connect with the top percussionists from around the world. We are thrilled to introduce the NYU Percussion Program Virtual Masterclass Series!

    These classes are not only available to our NYU Percussion Program students, but to the percussion community far and wide, for FREE! We've included the complete schedule below for spring semester; all classes will be presented via the Zoom platform. 

    There is a 100-person capacity per class (first come, first served), so advance registration is required. Complete the Google Form below a minimum of 24 hours in advance of the class, or classes, you would like to attend. You will receive an access link and meeting ID number to log-in on the day of the event. We hope you are able to join us for this unprecedented opportunity, and look forward to (virtually) seeing you at NYU in the days to come!

    REGISTER HERE FOR ALL CLASSES!

    If you have any questions, you can reach us at Jonathan Haas or Sean Statser.
