Why I Do It This Way!

Through many years of trial and error, I finally found the balance that I searched for regarding my percussion education program. The question was always “How many lessons per year is the optimum number to provide constant growth yet still give time off?”  As my students’ lives became more and more busy, it was apparent to me that a happy medium needed to be struck.
That number became forty-two lessons per year. By giving the students ten weeks off per year while keeping a year round schedule, I am able to keep the student focused and learning on a steady basis. I always found it to be counterproductive to have to waste valuable lesson time having to review material from the previous school year. Sometimes the review can be a month long. That simply hinders progress. Young students of elementary age particularly forget a lot of material over a three month break. That is why I schedule lessons during the summer months.
Students need that constant “groove” of practicing and lessons to continue to grow. I am able to offer a somewhat flexible schedule during the summers to allow for vacations, camps, and other events. This policy has produced outstanding musicians as well as outstanding individuals in all walks of life. Join my program and see for yourself!


Hi there! I’m Holly Horsley. Thank you for your interest in Triad Total Percussion!

Bitty Beats is gearing up for summer with fun outdoor related take home activities and summer related music!

We hope you will join us for our month centering on exploring the different types of notes and other musical notation!

We invite you to get in touch for a tour of the studio and to email with any questions about June’s curriculum!


Greetings!  My name is Jennifer Batson.  I am excited to be kicking off a new year at the studio!!
One of the biggest advantages of studying with Triad Total Percussion is year-round access to well-rounded instruction and top quality instruments for all ages.  I find myself repeating to my students weekly that it is important to practice consistently in order to make progress.  I would rather have students study fifteen minutes every day, using the approach to practicing we discuss at lessons, than to practice for two hours the day before their next lesson just trying to cram the material into their brains!  Similarly, studying throughout the year keeps students progressing and interest high.
As ensembles begin and lessons continue, I look forward to seeing what each student can achieve in the coming year!
