Percussion Class
The Percussion Class is composed entirely of percussionists. Percussionists are members of the band tasked with playing anything that can be struck with an object. The most common instruments played by percussionists are drums and melodic instruments (instruments set up like a piano). Both beginning and 2nd year players will be placed in the same class, though assignments are always always divided. Percussionists will often perform pieces called percussion ensembles. These pieces are usually written for only percussion instruments. 8th grade percussionists perform at events involving the Intermediate Band. 7th grade percussionist will perform at events involving the Beginning Band.
