INSTRUMENT CHOICES

PERCUSSION

ABOUT PERCUSSION: 

 

Just because you are always tapping on things does not mean you are a natural percussionist. In fact, the percussion section is the most select, hand-picked section of the band. Only students with the highest grades, lowest discipline problems, and extremely high gross and fine motor skills will be considered for percussion. Like the saxophone, percussion is a very popular instrument and only a few students will be chosen to play it.


PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS:

 

Students should exhibit a great deal of coordination in gross and fine motor skills

OTHER CONSIDERATIONS: 

 

The study of percussion includes more than you would think! Bells, triangle, tambourine, maracas, claves, cymbals, marimba, bass drum are just a few of the instruments students learn to master in the percussion section!

Students that wish to play percussion MUST come to one of the Instrument Selection Nights. Any student that tries out instruments late will not be considered for percussion. (The class will already be full.)
