A class dedicated to percussion students with specialized instruction on each of the percussion instruments. The percussion class operates in a variety of ways as they study and perform percussion ensemble music, servicing each of the concert band organizations as the percussion section for their assigned band, and as the drum line and "pit" for The Sound of Pride Marching Band. These students will participate in the FBA Solo & Ensemble Festival being placed into small concert percussion ensembles with the option to perform a solo. In addition, all percussion students participate and are a major part of the end of the year concerts and productions. All parts of this class are required events. Extra rehearsals and performances beyond the school day are required.
