Percussion Education Workshop (PEW)
Westwinds Music Society is thrilled to offer a FREE Percussion Education Workshop for Westwinds members AND non members, with our very skilled team of percussion educators – Celene Yohemas and Nia Devetzis. Our goal is to offer an opportunity to learn how to play the various instruments in the percussion section, hoping that this helps to bolster Adult Community Ensembles in the Calgary area, but also to find some budding percussionists to add to all of our Westwinds Concert Bands.
Dates: Saturday, September 30 & Sunday, October 1
Times: 10:00 am - 5:00 pm both days
Location: William Aberhart High School – 3009 Morley Trail NW
Instructors: Celene Yohemas & Nia Devetzis

Once the workshop is finished, Westwinds plans to continue offering a FREE percussion techniques course for at least the fall Semester (Oct-Dec) to continue to hone your percussion skills. This will be available for anyone who becomes a Westwinds member and registers and regularly attends any of our Concert Bands for the purpose of playing percussion. Westwinds reserves the right to vet these participants.
