GWA's percussion class was designed to enhance and challenge percussion students at George Walton. Students in this class are in seventh through 12th grade. The focus of this class is to further enhance skills on the various percussion instruments and promote a better understanding of basic rhythms, music theory, performance practices/etiquette, and technique.
The group meets every day and has a full curriculum including marching percussion, concert percussion, percussion ensemble and individual performance techniques and understandings. These students also have the opportunity to try out for the GMEA District 14 Honor Band and Georgia All-State Band. The concert schedule for these students includes the Christmas Concert and the Spring Concert.
This class also has the added benefit of access to percussion staff who come in and work with these students during class time. On occasion, they work one-on-one with these students and help them further their skills.
