Percussion Ensemble - Grades 5-8

Percussion Ensemble is open to all middle school students. No percussion experience is required. We bang on buckets and garbage cans. We boom with boomwhackers. We build instruments out of PVC pipe. We make a lot of noise! We also learn about rhythm and form. We build musical textures and find interesting timbres. Students are encouraged to improvise and discover beats and rhythmic patterns in the music. We play to current popular music as well as world music. We also compose and create original pieces.
