Percussion

Just because you are always tapping on things does not mean youare a natural percussionist (drummer). In fact, the percussion section is the most select, hand-picked section of the band. Students with the high academic standards, lowest discipline problems, backgrounds in piano lessons, and extremely high gross and fine motor skills will be considered for percussion.

 
Physical Characteristics

Students should exhibit a great deal of coordination in gross and fine motor skills.

 
Other Considerations

The study of percussion includes bells, xylophone, marimba, triangle, tambourine, maracas, claves, among many other instruments. Private Lessons for percussion are strongly encouraged due to the nature of the instrument group and the amount of material that will be covered in class.

RHS Cluster Fall Rally

Optional Performance Opportunity. Due to BISD Band Fest being canceled for this year, we have organized a Cluster Performance at the FAAC. This performance is for Honors and Concert Band (7th/8th grade) students only, although beginners (6th grade) and their families are highly encouraged to attend this event as an audience member. We will offer extra credit to anyone that attends the performance or as an audience member. 

These procedures and policies are set by BISD to ensure student, family, and friend safety:

  • Masks required for all students and family/friend guest attendees

  • We encourage all people to bring their own hand sanitizers AND we will have sanitizer stations available, as well

  • Stadium seats will be marked to assist with guest attendees maintaining 6 feet apart

  • Stadium seat capacity is 980 people – families may sit together but must remain 6 feet away from other guests

  • No adults will be allowed on the turf at any point

  • When leaving, audience members will be released by section to assist with distance protocols, please wait for your section to be released before leaving the stands

  • Students will be released immediately at the conclusion of the event and will go directly to the parking lot to meet their guardians and go home

RAAB and school officials will be stationed at the gated entrance reminding and enforcing all attendees to wear masks.

Here is the schedule for this event. 

  • 5:30 pm - all Honors and Concert Band members arrive at the FAAC. 

    • Enter through the West side of the stadium (by the tennis courts). Look for an NRMS Band Director to help guide you when you arrive 

  • 6:00 pm - Rehearsal with RHS and North Ridge Begins 

    • All students will be spaced out appropriately on the football field. 

  • 7:00 pm -  Performance begins. 

  • 7:45 pm - Performance is over. 

    • Every student needs to have an adult in the audience so everyone can go home immediately after the performance.
