Just because you are always tapping on things does not mean that you are a natural percussionist. In fact, the percussion section is the most select, hand-picked section in the band. Only students with the highest grades, lowest discipline problems, backgrounds in piano lessons, and extremely high gross and fine motor skills will be considered for percussion.
Physical Characteristics: Students should exhibit a great deal of coordination in gross and fine motor skills.
Other Considerations: The study of percussion includes bells, triangle, tambourine, maracas, claves, xylophone, marimba, vibraphone and many other instruments.
