Percussion Ensemble

  • The Eagle School Percussion Ensemble is a performing ensemble. The group meets once a week to rehearse and learn music and percussion technique together. Goals of the percussion ensemble program allow students to develop musicianship by learning to work together as a performer in an ensemble, developing motor skills for percussion technique, creating interactive and conversational percussion music.

     

    Instruments used in percussion ensemble include: drums, keyboard percussion, found percussion(buckets, pots, pencils, cans), and body percussion(e.g. clapping, stomping)

     

    Recommended materials(for practice at home):

    A drum practice pad

    A pair of drum sticks

Rehearsal Schedule

  • Thursdays: 8:20-8:50

     

    Students are expected to attend every rehearsal on time. Students who have three unexcused absences in a row, five total absences, or arrive late to seven rehearsals will be removed as a member of the percussion ensemble
