As a percussionist studying at NEC you have chosen to work with one of the world’s most distinguished music faculties. Our percussion faculty represent a broad range of professional experience in chamber music and as orchestra players for the world-renowned Boston Symphony Orchestra. The BSO's Frank Epstein leads the NEC Percussion Ensemble in several Jordan Hall concerts each year.

At the core of your studies is studio instruction. Your studio work is put into practice with performance opportunities in studio class, recitals, the NEC Percussion Ensemble, and orchestra ensembles. Course work in music history and theory gives depth and understanding to your performance repertoire. The liberal arts curriculum is an opportunity to study major academic disciplines as well as cultural, social, intellectual, and political contexts for music.
