Percussion ensemble is a performing ensemble emphasizing in the development of rudiments and basic percussion fundamentals. The traditional concert band setting only provides minimal opportunity for percussionists to explore the vast body of instruments at their disposal. This class aims to supplement instruction gained in concert band ensembles as well as introduce a comprehensive collection of percussion ensemble repertoire. There is encouragement for further solo and small group exposure.
Literature is expected to be Grade 2-4 and ensemble is currently expected to 18+ members. This course may be repeated for additional credit.
