Mike Lynch hosted the North Georgia Middle School Percussion Camp June 8th -11th at Lassiter High School. The band program at Lassiter is nationally known for having a high standard of excellence in marching and concert performances. The 55 middle school students in attendance were exposed to several different areas of percussion. The students participated in a drumline, percussion ensemble, sessions on 2&4 mallet keyboard techniques, timpani, drumset and Brazilian and African percussion. There were also several other master classes including cymbals. The students were taught the proper way to tie a cymbal knot, execute a crash with a pair of hand cymbals, and the proper way to perform a suspended cymbal roll.
