Who is Two Rivers Timpani Summit (TRTS) for?

TRTS is for students and educators who want an immersive, in-depth experience with timpani. We will cover all of basics--stoke types, ear training, articulations, rolls, pedaling, and more! We will also talk about maintaining the instruments--replacing heads, clearing, and mallet wrapping. Finally, we will discuss solo and orchestral timpani repertoire.
