The percussion ensembles meet as a class during fourth and eighth block. The classes are split by ability into the non-auditioned Percussion II, and the auditioned Advanced Percussion Class. Students taking this class learn techniques specific to percussion. In the fall, students audition for their ensemble placement which determines which of the three bands the students will perform with, and their placement in one of the two percussion ensembles that we run during class time. Students will have the opportunity to work on concert percussion, marching percussion, and a variety of multicultural percussion instruments throughout the year. Students in this group will perform at all of the major concerts and at pep band games in the spring. Students are highly encouraged to audition for All County, All State Band and All State Orchestra.
