Educational Programs

The members of the Matrix Percussion Trio excel as both teachers and performers. The trio delivers exciting programs that will entertain and educate students of any age or expertise.

Using percussion instruments as a point of departure, the Matrix Trio brings the study of cultures into your general or instrumental music class, or assembly. Through performing and presenting the musics of other cultures, the trio will give your students a greater appreciation of the unique musical aspects of other cultures, and spark their interest in music of all cultures.
