WELCOME 

This website is designed to train you into a skilled timpanist so you can demolish any  timpani part that comes your way and dominate at honor band auditions. You will find videos demonstrating fundamental techniques and tools for you to use to develop your ear training and tuning skills. I encourage you to come in during study hall to practice along with these videos and tuning exercises.
