Elon World Percussion Ensemble is open to new members

The Elon WPE is looking for new members for the Spring of 2015.  No experience is required and it is open to any member of the student body.

The Elon World Percussion Ensemble shares the joys of the rhythmic, musical and cultural aspects of West African, Afro-Cuban, Afro-Rican and Brazilian music.

Under the direction of Jim Roberts, this performing group focuses on hand, bell and stick drum or other percussion techniques that are used in a wide variety of musical situations with a traditional and improvisational base. Additionally, Individual drum set lessons are available for semester credit under Mr. Roberts (Mus 142A).  You might think ” I have never played an instrument so why should I start now?”  Find out why it is good for your brain by viewing “How playing an instrument benefits your brain” –  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0JKCYZ8hng#t=28
