Percussion // Design

No matter the size or instrumentation of your group, Lean Forward Design will sculpt percussion arrangements that excite your students, as well as audience. We believe that music should be fun, as well as educational. This is why Lean Forward focuses on the talents of your students and the skills they should aquire while performing.

Have a small ensemble? That’s perfectly fine. We will work with the instruments and numbers of performers that you have. Have a terrific Bass Line and a young Front Ensemble? Thats fine too. Lean Forward will arrange a percussion score that is catered to the skills of your specific performers.

Lean Forward strives to educate through composition while also educating each ensemble through any means possible. Exercises can be written to accompany the music which your show demands. Let me help your percussion program develop pedagogically, yet naturally.

Our Percussion Duo


Scott Lanning and Dillon Ingle have been working and drumming together since their introduction at Western Carolina University. Drumming quickly became a common bond between the two, as they performed along side each other throughout their college careers. Naturally, teaching was the next step in the process, followed by design. They have served together as percussion instructors, arrangers, and designers for several award winning ensembles including: Genesis Drum and Bugle Corps, Tuscola High School, North Buncombe High School, Buncombe Beatz, and many more. It is safe to say that Dillon and Scott are a percussive-tag-team to be reckoned with. Why hire one percussion arranger, when you can hire two?

It's all in the details...
