Electric Drum Ensemble
In 2009, the USC Thornton School of Music partnered with Roland, one of the world’s top manufacturers of electronic musical instruments, to establish the Roland Drumlab. This monumental partnership makes USC the first to require drumset proficiency as part of a Popular Music Performance program. Peter Erskine who was key in the creation of the lab, works directly with the students in a setting that allows for simultaneous instruction and practice capabilities for an entire classroom of students.
