[envira-gallery slug="perc"]

The Emory Percussion Studio is part of a comprehensive program including Percussion Ensemble, Wind Ensemble, Symphony Orchestra, recital/solo opportunities, and applied private study with a world-class faculty. Emory percussion students enjoy a challenging performance schedule combined with a rich social community. Admission to the program is by audition, though incoming freshmen may audition when they arrive to campus in August – please see below.

Ensemble Auditions (Fall)

Auditions are required of all new and returning students in late August each academic year. Beginning in late July preceding each academic year, you may sign up for an audition time here. Returning students must prepare these excerpts taken from EWE and EUSO concert repertoire for the upcoming season. New students are highly encouraged to prepare the same excerpts, so we can accurately assess your abilities. Please contact Prof. Scott Pollard ASAP to discuss alternative audition material, as needed.

Scholarship Auditions for Prospective Students

The Department of Music offers a number of  Music Scholarships for incoming freshmen. Please prepare etudes or solos on at least two of the following instruments: Mallets, Snare Drum, and Timpani. Sight-reading, rudiments, scales, and tuning may be asked at a live audition.

Please click here for more details about what you should prepare for your audition.

Practice Room/Instrument Access

To gain access to percussion practice spaces, contact Dr. Paul Bhasin, Director of Orchestral Studies, as soon as you arrive on campus in August!

Applied Study

Private lessons are strongly encouraged for anyone wanting to participate in the percussion program. Visit the Emory Department of Music website for more information.

Emory Percussion Ensemble

The Emory Percussion Ensemble (EPE) is a diverse chamber ensemble composed of percussionists from the Wind Ensemble and Symphony Orchestra. Coached by Prof. Pollard, the EPE performs at least once per semester. The ensemble performs unique and challenging works without a conductor. EPE rehearses most weeks on Monday evenings for 1-2 hours, between 7-10 pm.
