Hosted by the NYU Steinhardt Percussion Studies Program the Broadway Percussion Seminar offers classes with special guest percussionists, contractors, and conductors from the world of Broadway. There will be sessions presented on drum set, percussion, mallet percussion, timpani, and Latin percussion, by the percussionists who developed the Broadway books!

Panel discussions will be held with leading percussionists, conductors, and contractors who are actively pursuing musical careers on Broadway.
The students will have the opportunity to attend two Broadway shows, offering the opportunity for each participant to experience to sit in a live Broadway pit, during an actual Broadway show! They will also dine with the Broadway percussionists after a matinee performance.
