Percussion at Parkway West
Percussion students at Parkway West High School are given opportunities to experience and perform a wide variety of percussion literature. In the fall semester, students may elect to perform in the marching band drum line or front ensemble. Percussion meets as a curricular course, and emphasis is placed on technique. Prior to symphonic and concert band performances, percussion students are divided into "sections" to perform with the bands.
In addition to preparing band repertoire, all students perform in various ensembles throughout the fall and spring semesters.
The percussion program at Parkway West is under the direction of Mr. Skip Thompson.
