So I'm going to teach our beginning percussion class next year. Haven't taught beginning percussion before, but I feel like I've got a good foundation to rely on. |
Big question I have right now is when do I transition beginners from a "sticks up" starting position to a "set position" starting position.
Our percussion head prefers a "sticks up" starting position, which is fine, but I'm wondering when I should transition kids to a more standard set position?
For those of you that start this way, is there a date that you transition (e.g. after christmas, 7th grade, etc.), or are you looking for a specific skillset to be in place and consistent?
