The New England Percussion Ensemble specializes in presenting creative and energetic audience-interactive enrichment programs to youngsters.

About Us

You touched their hearts and they learned. Your program should be required in every school curriculum.

Dr. Andrew S. Carrano, Principal

Dunn’s Corners Elementary School

Westerly, RI

As professional percussionist / educators we have presented our electrifying programs for 20+ years - thousands of times to well over half a million children and adults, most often in school assembly settings and family settings such as First Night / Boston.

Our nationally unique, multi-cultural presentations are a healthy blend of information, performance and hands-on participation which engages audiences physically, emotionally and intellectually. Eyes, ears and minds are opened by the many melodic, rhythmic and tonal possibilities of percussion, and the notion that percussion is “just drums” is forever changed. (Click for performers)

“ The children, teachers and parents were riveted by your foot stomping, hand clapping, drum beating, bag ruffling interactive presentation. ”
