On Saturday morning, advanced percussion students have the opportunity to participate in both the MYSticks percussion ensemble during the first part of the morning and in Symphony Orchestra during the second half. Advanced students also have the unique chance to perform with MYSfits, MYS’s advanced, self-conducted string ensemble and with the advanced Jazz band during the concert season.
The Percussion Studio is offered to percussion students across all MYS orchestras and bands. This class will include technique for different orchestral percussion instruments, care and maintenance of instruments, orchestral excerpts, orchestral and band etiquette, and any other relevant topics.
One year of experience is required. Fill out the Registration Form and pay the audition fee to reserve an audition spot.
