Membership in the ACA Percussion Ensemble is required for all Advanced Band percussionists. Wind players may also participate in Percussion Ensemble if interested for certain performances. Being in the Percussion Ensemble allows students to dig deeper into the fundamentals of a variety of percussion instruments and musical styles that are normally not covered in Advanced Band. Additional after school rehearsals are usually held in order to prepare for concerts & competitions. The percussion ensemble is taught by Andy Martin, ACA’s percussion instructor.
