Meet the "Trash Talk" Percussion Ensembles
Members of ‘Trash Talk’ turn the traditional idea of a percussion ensemble right on its head. They perform a variety of contemporary percussion music that is written for trashcans, plastic buckets, pipes, and metal pails. The different levels of TT are open to any budding musician (not just drummers) with strong rhythmic ability that is looking for a cool, new musical challenge. Under the direction of NCMS Percussion Instructor Ray Aucoin, members of TT combine the musical with the visual to achieve one of the most powerful performance experiences you will ever be a part of.
Trash Talk Junior
- Ages 9-13
- Spring Term Workshop Coming Soon!
Trash Talk Jr is designed to introduce the power and excitement of drumming with recycled percussion to children ages 9-13. Each 45 minute class features original music composed for our unique instruments ranging from plastic buckets and barrels, metal pails, to good old trashcans. During the course of the program, students are introduced to basic drumming technique and the innovative use of body/space percussion on these nontraditional instruments. By the end of the program, the students will get the chance to share their work as a special addition to our Student Recitals. Trash Talk Jr is the perfect way for your child to explore the world of rhythm and drumming in a fun and unconventional way. No prior music experience is necessary. A love for banging on things and making noise is highly encouraged!
