Percussion at Woodbridge School  

15 Mar 24

The school offers a wealth of opportunities for our numerous budding percussionists, and our percussion room is extremely well stocked with an enviable range of professional standard instruments including orchestral marimba, vibraphone, timpani and djembes. 

Our Percussion Ensemble meets regularly to perform together – something of a rarity in a school and certainly something we’re extremely proud of. The presence and quantity of ensemble musicians has attracted the attention of musical directors putting on a performance in St Edmundsbury Cathedral, which is rather exciting.

Our Director of Music, Mr Woodley shared,

“We are extremely excited to have been approached to provide percussion for a big opera production next year – I can’t share any more details than that right now, but it’s a true reflection of the ability and talent our students have and we’re delighted to have been asked!”

He continued, sharing details of the School’s Percussion Teacher, Kyomi Seed,

“We’re truly blessed to have the talent and enthusiasm of Kyomi in School each Wednesday and Thursday – and she also teaches at our Prep School, our students certainly enjoy and benefit from their time spent together.” 

He continued, 

“Access to and experience of music and musical instruments is so vital for learning, and also incredibly fun!  We’re so pleased to welcome such talent into Woodbridge School for our students to experience, learn and benefit from.”   

Kyomi studied at The Julliard School in New York where she achieved a Master of Music Performance, Florida State University where she received a Bachelor of Music Performance and has an Australian Kodlay Music Certificate in Education.  With truly magnificent orchestral experience, including the Aurora Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra and Illinois Symphony Orchestra to name but a few, our students benefit from her wealth of experience and passion for percussion!
