Chadron State College Percussion Studio

The percussion program strives to provide an opportunity for students to find their musical voice through total immersion in the world of music and percussion.


The curriculum is designed to prepare students to become independent musicians: to be competent and proficient to prepare new music without supervision; to be sensitive musicians always striving for the best sound; to be competitive in auditions, and for performing and/or teaching opportunities.

CSC Percussion offers several performing ensemble opportunities percussionists. We offer the Eagle Drumline, a concert percussion ensemble, two wind ensembles, a jazz ensemble, guitar ensemble, and a vocal jazz ensemble.

Contact Dr. Rick Puzzo at for more information about the CSC percussion studio.
