Marquette, MI- The Percussive Attack Camp in Marquette, MI was created in 2010 to encourage the study of sound and rhythm. This camp encourages the use of auditory percussive attacks on music. Participants are also instructed with intensive, performance based guidance.
This event took place in a very professional yet engaging and comfortable environment. There are about 20 participants in this years camp, ages ranging from teenagers all the way to adults.
The non-profit camp was made possible by generous donors, foundations, and members of the community.
Carrie Biolo and Eric Roth, a guest instructor from Chicago, Illinois are teaching this years camp participants to appreciate the rhythm of music through using everyday housing materials. Campers made music with drumsticks, metal frying pans, metal mixing bowls, and wood blocks. Eric Roth told the campers, “You have to remember to support the soloist while they are performing their solo parts.”
