NO MARCHING PERCUSSION SESSION ON FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19.

 

 

2021-2022 Marching Percussion

 

We are adding something new to our marching percussion activities this semester. In addition to our mandatory clinics for grades 8-11, we are also going to have optional training sessions for those in grades 8-11 interested in auditioning for a drumline instrument for next year. These training sessions will go over battery technique using the marching percussion packet that has already been given to you.

 

These training sessions will be held weekly on Fridays from 4:30-6 in the JHS band room. The first session will be on Friday, January 22 Friday, January 15. We will set up in the JHS band room like we would for the mandatory clinics. 

 

Our current circumstances with the pandemic still do not allow us to share items like drumsticks, mallets, and marching percussion music. Please bring those items with you. Please have your pencil, mask, and athletic shoes.

 

Toward the end of the semester, all percussionists in grades 8-11 who will be in high school band next year will be required to attend the clinic/audition days at the JHS band room. These audition days will determine your instrument placement for next year (snare, tenor, bass, front ensemble). The dates are listed below and will follow a similar time frame as the optional training sessions. More information will be passed on to you later in the semester.
