General Info: 2019/2020 brings the 9th year of UMS Percussion Ensemble! This is a safe and creative environment where musicians of all experience levels work together in a supportive way to create something really cool. Good music, awesome skills, and kindness. While winning is fun, we are here for something much more important than that: we are here to grow passionate and creative musicians.
UMS Percussion is a winter percussion ensemble that runs from October through our March/April final competition (roughly 2nd and 3rd quarters on the school calendar). The purpose of our club is to teach students how to play percussion instruments in an ensemble setting. Our instructors work with students to develop technique, reading skills, and well-rounded musicianship. We practice after school Tuesdays and Thursdays (3:00 - 4:30/5:00), and play at school performances and competitions on the NCPA circuit.
All skill levels are welcome from never-played to advanced, and our instrumentation includes battery: snare, quads, basses, cymbals; and front ensemble: marimba, xylophone, vibraphone, electric bass, drum set, auxiliary, and synthesizer. Our members are diverse in musical background and in personal interests and that is what makes our membership so rich.
