Percussive Arts Class
This course is led by Mr. Jay Chipman, with the assistance of Mr. J.B. Ross, Simon Podsiadlik, Abbie Carlton, and is designed to help percussion students further their musical skills outside of regular band class. Students will rehearse and perform with others. They will be taught music reading skills, musicality, music terminology, music history, and music theory. We will work on music to be performed with the bands, as well as music to be performed on our own as a percussion ensemble. Students will also be required to prepare short solos on the various percussion instruments (better known as pass-offs). During the first semester our primary focus will be on marching band. During the rest of the year we will focus on concert music and the competitive indoor percussion ensemble. It is important to remember that the students in this class are part of the Bryant High School Band Program.
Indoor Percussion and AMAA
The Bryant High School Indoor Percussion ensemble is a member of the Arkansas Marching Arts Association (AMAA) and performs regularly within this circuit.
