Department of Percussion Music

There is a high demand for Sri Lankan drummers both locally and internationally. The acquisition of the artistic skill that is required in order to play these traditional drums is highly demanding and complicated. Hence, the Department of Percussion Music was formed in order to pass down these ancient drumming skills to the present generation, whereby they can learn to engage in new, creative and experimental modes of drumming. In this context, the Department of Percussion Music has designed a carefully planned syllabus to equip students with the required theoretical knowledge and the practical training so as to face the multifaceted challenges they may encounter after graduation. The department offers Bachelor of Performing Arts (special) Degrees in Oriental Drumming. It is also scheduled to conduct several Diploma Programmes with a view to providing an opportunity especially for those employed, to enhance their knowledge in subject areas of their choice.
