Percussion ensemble is a full year class that we offer to teach students the fundamentals of both rudimental and concert percussion. The first semester, teachers focus on rudimental techniques and equipment, which is traditionally found in marching band, indoor drum line, and other marching arts. The second semester, teachers focus on concert percussion typically found in collegiate percussion ensembles. This semester culminates in an end of the year performance for the community. The percussion ensemble may also travel to festivals and other adjudicated activities outside of the school.
