Percussion Ensemble is broken into 2 sections. Each Fall, the Advanced Percussion Ensemble meets. In this class we further enhance skills and techniques on all percussion instruments. Students rehearse on marching drums as well. Many members of the Marching Band's Percussion section are in this class, however it is not a requirement. The Advanced Percussion Ensemble also performs yearly at the annual Student Council led Holiday Cheer.
Beginning Percussion ensemble meets each year in the Spring. No prior knowledge of percussion or even music is required to participate in this class. Basics are covered in regards to reading notes & rhythms, as well as techniques in using the keyboard instruments or drums. This is not a "Drumming" class, students will be expected to learn on all instruments.
