During this class we will examine composition and improvisation in percussion music that include rhythmic, harmonic and melodic structures. The class will also learn about the cultural and folkloric content of the music. Individually each student/player will lead the ensemble in a new work/s that incorporates musical techniques from the music studied in the class. Collectively the ensemble will participate in arranging traditional music for this contemporary world percussion ensemble.  This spring 2017 the class ensemble will study Arabic and North African music, Southeast Asian music, South American and South Asian music.
