We are thrilled to announce that Steve Weiss Music is carrying our single sided practice pads.
Also congratulations to all those who made it through another school year. And now for the summer marching season! Special thanks goes out to Adam Hopper and his Southwestern High School and Middle Schools percussion departments. They were the first group to order a set of classroom practice pads in our very beginning and they did it by fundraising! We love following them as a group and individually so we can watch them grow and advance in percussion. We cant thank them enough for their support. Check out this article to read more about Adams decision to purchase a set of pads for his students at totalpercussionist.com.
Beetle Percussion is excited to announce a new category of sponsorship called the Beetle Percussion Ambassador. Please welcome our first Ambassador, a high school senior from Indiana, Nathan Powers. It is his passion and enthusiasm for both our companies environmental goals and percussion that compelled us to begin the Ambassadorship. Please check him out and welcome him in to the larger percussion family where he can make connections that will benefit him the rest of his drumming life. The Beetle Ambassadorship is an amateur endorsement program for young adult percussionists who show an exceptional interest in our company and its environmental message and impact. They are randomly and rarely selected by us. The youngest generation will have to deal with climate changes and it is important to us that they know there are tangible ways to make a real difference in their world through ecologically helpful reclaimed products. If an ambassador chooses go to university for percussion, the day they graduate with an undergraduate degree in percussion they automatically become an official Beetle Percussion Artist.
Beetle Percussion is proud to be the official practice pad of Percussion Academy Online! They have created the first fully encompassing, online percussion education website! The Academy staff has developed a curriculum that guides players from picking up their first stick to executing some of the most complicated and demanding percussion music. In addition, their students will learn to develop ensemble skills and accessory playing that will allow them to function in any group playing environment. Their unique curriculum is driven by thousands of videos that instruct students verbally and visually because they believe that the key component in a student's success is their ability to mimic quality instruction.
