Elementary Children Percussion Ensemble Take On Led Zeppelin

The is no mistaking the power of music education. Illustrated here is all the proof anyone needs to know the dynamic impact that music training and education at a young age creates profound opportunities for young people.

The Louisville Leopard Percussionists do more than simply put on a music recital, they provide one of the best cover iterations of 3 classic Led Zeppelin songs. Fan favorites Kashmir, The Ocean, and The Immigrant Song all flourish with power and a rock attitude despite the lack of electric guitars.

All 22 children illustrate not only a strong command of their instruments, but also a rich understanding of the textural brilliance of Zeppelin’s music. That fact alone is worth celebrating. Add to it that students under the age of 13 can mirror what many rock musicians spend their lives trying to replicate is very inspiring.
