LBC’s Total Percussion Seminar


Lancaster Bible College recently sponsored their annual Total Percussion Seminar as part of the Lancaster Summer Music program. AMT’s own drummer/percussionist extraordinaire, Gabriel Staznik , is a member of the music faculty at LBC and served as Artistic Director for the event.

The five-day seminar, specifically designed for high school and college students, featured world-class professional percussionists offering clinics, workshops, and master classes. Students received hands-on instruction in orchestral percussion, drum set, world drumming, music technology, and audition preparation. On the last day of the seminar, participants were treated to a performance and Q&A session with members of Hershey Park’s Cocoa Rhythm Factory.

Kudos to Gabe, guest artists and clinicians, and TPS organizers on their successful event and for offering a new generation of aspiring percussionists the opportunity to learn from the best!
