TEK Percussion™

The TEK Percussion Database, created by Dr. Tracy Freeze, is a web-based research tool for the professional percussionist, educator, composer, student and enthusiast. This database contains details on composers, compositions, performers, pedagogy, history, and percussion instruments. To browse the wiki contents, go to the Common Categories or use the navigation panel on the left side of the browser.

The database is currently open, please sign up for a free account and log in. The wiki is regularly updated, but needs a community of users to contribute to help fill in information as you are able.
For more information or inquiries about the project please contact Dr. Tracy Freeze

    5/24/22 - for Contributors: Here are two shortcuts to creating a composer page {{subst:composers}} & a works page {{subst:works}}
    Also for creating categories at the bottom of each page, here are two pages that you can cut and paste into the page you are working on... this will help not have misspellings and mislabeling of categories. Common Categories & Common Works Categories
    Lastly, please feel free to use the talk pages on the profiles to ask questions or respond to discussion I have posted on your user name Talk page.


    3/23/18 - Update: I have added a walkthrough for creating a composer page. It takes a little bit of patience learning how to do it, but once you have done a few of them it gets easier. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like me to help add some content. :-) Composer Page Walkthrough
