Percussion Ensemble Spring Concert 2022_edited.jpg

OHS Percussion Ensemble

Percussion Ensemble is the band class for high school percussionists. This course explores numerous percussion fundamentals and standards, including the 40 PAS Drum Rudiments, music notation reading, rhythmic development, and Percussion Ensemble repertoire. Percussion Ensemble meets in both the fall and spring semester, and students should be enrolled in both. Though this course is designed to be percussion focused and specific, members of the Percussion Ensemble will perform with the Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band at concerts, in addition to the Percussion ensemble repertoire.

Students who are interested in joining Percussion Ensemble but have little or no music experience are able to enroll in this course upon director approval.
