Percussion Ensembles at a Glance

We are proud to offer several ensembles at La Salle for students interested in percussion!

For new high school students who want to get a taste of percussion, we have a Percussion Class which meets during the school day as an elective. Students in the class learn many small ensemble pieces throughout the year and perform at our annual Night of Percussion concert in late April.

Students ready to get the full experience in our Marching Band and Wind Ensemble percussion programs should plan on attending an audition clinic in June.  These are our most visible percussion ensembles and offer the most exciting experience for students!

Grade school students can get involved by joining our Jr. Percussion program which meets after school on Wednesdays from 4:00pm – 5:30pm and runs December through April.  We teach a skill-set based approach that, when applied, will develop musical skills that carry students beyond simply playing a piece of music!
