This class performs with the Marching Band and Symphonic Band. They will perform at home football games, pep assemblies, and parades. The band travels to most away football game and to several marching competitions in the fall. In addition to regular class time, this class is designed to give the percussion student the time and dedication he/she deserves. In the fall, we will concentrate on marching percussion. In the spring, we will learn the same repertoire as the concert bands. We will also perform percussion ensemble pieces. There is a band camp before school starts. A physical is needed for this activity. This is a performance-based class for a grade. Grades will be taken in and outside of regular class time. This class may be repeated for credit. The first semester of this class may be applied to a semester of Physical Education (PE) credit for students.
