My name is Dr. Brad Meyer, and I am the Director of Percussion Studies at Stephen F. Austin State University. The SFA Percussion Studio and I would like to invite any high school percussionist who is looking to become a music performance or music education major in college to spend a day on the SFA campus by participating in our free “Be an SFA Percussionist for a Day” program. Students will get to experience what the typical day of a college percussion music major is like by shadowing a current freshman or sophomore percussion music major.
