At Lawrence University, your percussion studies will include a comprehensive curriculum that covers the techniques and styles rooted in the two cultures that have most heavily influenced our musical tradition: Western art music and the music of West Africa. Professor of Percussion Dane Richeson will teach you the technical and musical skills necessary to achieve mastery in a variety of percussion areas. Through private lessons, ensembles, and visiting guest clinicians in an intense and creative atmosphere you will immerse yourself in the diversity of the percussive arts. In addition to the strong percussion program, you will benefit from a top-tier undergraduate conservatory of music, Down Beat award winning jazz program, and nationally ranked liberal arts college.
