This course is an experiential, hands-on percussion ensemble with the two-headed janggo drum the predominant instrument in Korean music. Students will be introduced to traditional folk and court styles of janggo drumming. They will learn to play a range of percussion instruments including janggo, barrel drum, and hand gong.
The ensemble plays arranged pieces based on both traditional and new materials and creates new work exploring imaginative sounds on those instruments. The ensemble will experience a deep respect for the diverse cultural backgrounds of the students developed from the efforts of teamwork and creating music together through Korean drumming. The semester will end with a live performance.
