Percussion Tuition

Percussion Department


The Percussion Department offers the opportunity for children and young people, to receive tuition in a wide range of percussion instruments. We have a team of peripatetic percussion tutors working in both Primary and Secondary schools. This provision gives children access to tuition on percussion instruments and it also provides support to the teaching staff in each school. We have a team of specialist percussion tutors who work at the City of Belfast School of Music in the evenings and weekends delivering individual lessons and group tuition. Our percussion students enjoy opportunities to rehearse together in various bands and orchestras, performing throughout the year in a range of venues both home and abroad.
