Pads in Isolation With the outbreak of COVID-19, percussion students worldwide found themselves without regular ensemble rehearsals that were part of their daily lives. Pads in Isolation was composed with the idea to facilitate virtual student ensembles: find four friends that each have a pair of sticks and a practice pad, assign each player to a part, create individual video or audio recordings of each part using the click track in headphones, then piece the parts together into an ensemble using your favorite video or audio editing software.
