Are you ready for middle school band?

Summer is a great time to learn even more 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, backgrounds in piano lessons, and extremely high gross and fine motor skills will be considered for percussion.

Physical Characteristics: Students should exhibit a great deal of coordination in gross and fine motor skills.

Other Considerations: The study of percussion includes marimba, triangle, tambourine, maracas, claves, among many other instruments.
