Juilliard’s percussion department enjoys an outstanding reputation, attracting talented young musicians from around the world.  The department’s faculty members include distinguished soloists, recording artists, and principals of major orchestras.

As a percussion student at Juilliard, you will work closely with our dedicated faculty members and enjoy ample performance opportunities. All students participate in the Juilliard Percussion Ensemble, which gives two concerts annually. Concerto competitions are held on a rotating basis, and winners perform with the Juilliard Orchestra at Alice Tully Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, or the Peter Jay Sharp Theater. You can also join one or more of the School’s numerous orchestras, chamber groups, and new music ensembles.  Last but not least, you can gain valuable interactive performance experience by participating in one of Juilliard’s educational or community outreach programs.
