WHAT THE IQ COMMUNITY SAYS

Sebastian, Bluecoats

Percussion IQ gave me a really unique perspective seeing as it allowed me to be compared to people outside of my usual peers at such a young age, allowing me to really see what I had to do to get to the next level.

Sean, Blue Devils/RCC

Getting the IQ reports and commentary back drastically helped me improve by giving me exact descriptions of what I needed to work on and specific
steps to fix my issues

Josh, Carolina Crown

The Arizona IQ clinic gave me the information I needed to see, with actual statistics about my playing in order to improve upon them. It can be a real eye opener when you see on paper the things you excel at as well as the things you don’t.
