SUU Percussion

Percussion Studio

Percussion Studio workshop in west African drumming.

The Percussion Studio at Southern Utah University is a close-knit group of students pursuing both percussion performance and music education under the direction of Dr. Lynn Vartan. Students have the opportunity to study orchestral percussion, solo artist development, drum set, ethnic percussion and chamber music in the striking natural setting of the rocks and mountains that Southern Utah has to offer. Students also have the opportunity to pursue and design programs in education as well, such as the Elementary African Drum Group Bumbelberry Jam and ArtsFusion Elementary Percussion events at rural schools. The size of the Department allows for students to have constant access to Dr. Vartan, along with get-togethers like BBQ’s and a game night!

There are also several opportunities to network with professional musicians who are frequently on campus to perform and/or record with Dr. Vartan. It is an atmosphere filled with performance, growth, sharing and fun!

Southern Utah University invites you to come study percussion at the undergraduate level, and hone your skills to be successful wherever you decide to go next!
