Chal Ragsdale, host

As a leader in your field, you bring a valuable perspective to the process of teaching percussion. We're looking forward to seeing you in May. Let's make this NCPP a stimulating experience for everyone.

At the NCPP, everyone is a clinician and an equal participant in discussions.

The National Conference on Percussion Pedagogy (NCPP) is designed to provide a forum for elementary & secondary music educators, university percussion pedagogues, professional percussionists, university music education specialists, and undergraduate & graduate students to explore the status of percussion pedagogy in the United States as well as to outline strategies for improving the teaching and learning of percussion instruments. The conference will provide a forum to increase awareness of "what is happening," to guide us toward identifying "what should happen," and to provide means for "making it happen."
