Percussion Ensemble

We are very fortunate at Saguaro to have a Percussion Ensemble class every day. The Percussion Ensemble class is geared to building each student’s skills on each percussion instrument. For the concerts, the percussion ensemble practices the music without the bands to ensure an excellent performance. As the concerts approach, digital recordings of each ensemble are used in class to simulate a full rehearsal.
In addition to the percussion parts for concert pieces, the percussion ensemble has students performing in small and large percussion only groups for music written specifically for percussion ensemble. This gives our percussionists a much more comprehensive percussion education than just performing in the concert bands.
