Students have full access to world class traditional western percussion instruments such as Gretch, Yamaha, Sonar, Mapex and Tama Drum Kits, Zildjian and Sabian cymbals, a wide range of keyboard percussion including 5 octave Marimbas, AdamsPhilharmonic Light Timpani with Super Kalfo skins, several smaller keyboard instruments, including a wide variety of orchestral drums, Chinese toms, and orchestral accessories.
Practice and rehearsal rooms
The percussion area includes a large ensemble room (big enough for Ionization!) and three specially designed practice rooms with double doors (each large enough for a percussion trio or quartet). All equipment can move freely around the percussion area, as well as a short distance from Llewellyn Hall, Canberra's premiere concert venue.
In addition to a complete range of traditional western percussion instruments, the percussion area is the custodian of a set of West African Ewe and Ashanti drums, a complete Javanese Gamelan, as well as a set of Brazilian Samba instruments.
Electronic and Digital Percussion
Students have access to equipment such as a 12-station Roland Drumset Laboratory, KAT controllers including MalletKats, DrumKats, TrapKat, Handsonics, SPDs samplers, a Moog Voyeger, Kurzweil and Yamaha Motif modules, Muse receptor AM, Roland V Drums 20K pro series, Mackie Boards and PA systems and a large array of other products that allow for the exploration between music and technology.
