The percussion ensemble was created because percussion and drum teacher Maarten Rongen wanted to present all percussion students as one large group during his annual recital evening. Maarten finds playing together – in addition to the individual lessons – very important and wants the students to come into contact with other percussion instruments besides the drum and drum kit.

Enthusiastic percussion students can participate in the percussion ensemble. Experienced percussionists who do not take percussion lessons at the Diemen Music School, but who do have sufficient knowledge and mastery of percussion instruments and notation, can also register for this ensemble at Music School Diemen

The ensemble is led by percussion teacher and conductor Maarten Rongen.

Because we are currently experiencing location problems for rehearsals, the ensemble’s rehearsals are not taking place at the moment. We are working hard on a solution. If this situation improves, we will keep you informed.
