Percussion base settles in high school
    2017-May-31  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Shenzhen Teaching and Demonstration Base of the Percussive Arts Society (China) was unveiled at the No. 3 Senior High School of Shenzhen by the Percussive Arts Society (China) and the school on May 18, marking the first base of its type set up in a regular high school in China. On the same day, the Guyun Leiting (rhythm of drum and thunder) Percussion Band was established.

Yao Yueyang, a grade 10 student at the school and also a member of the Guyun Leiting Percussion Band, said during his speech that as a student with zero percussion music experience as of two months ago, he has gained many wonderful memories during the past two months.

Yao said that playing music always reenergizes him after a long day at school. Since he joined the band, he has started managing his time better and improved his study habits. Standing on the stage and performing also help him feel more confident.

Later that same day, national-level percussion experts from Beijing, many of whom performed at the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics and the CCTV Spring Festival Gala as well as other events, joined hands with the school band and offered a musical feast to the audience.

According to Wu Changyue, vice principal of the high school, the teaching and demonstration base aims to utilize the high-quality resources and professional experience of the Percussive Arts Society (China) to reform the music program and improve musical education at the school.

The U.S.-based Percussive Arts Society is the most influential percussion music art association in the world. In May 2016, the Percussive Arts Society (China) was established with the aim of popularizing and developing percussion music in China and expanding its influence around the world. (Chen Xiaochun)
