Percussion A Class

Class A Ensembles are a unique and special aspect of the marching percussion family.  These are the younger or less developed participants.  Our goal is to assist in their training and development and to reward these achievements in a logical learning progression.  To teach these groups with the greatest degree of consistency and success requires a thorough understanding of their level of development and training.

Scholastic A Class is consistently aged 14 through 17.  Like most high school students, the ensembles show a tendency to be similar to one another.  Their choice of equipment, the formatting of their shows and the depth of their training and skills are comparable in many cases.

Independent A Class ensemble use the same criteria as the Scholastic A Class with exception of the age limit.  Here is where the beginning students discovers the joy of performing and realizes the sense of achievement as each skill is learned.
