Students should prepare all parts to the best of their ability. Your band director will supply you with the password to access the parts.

 

Scales

Students should also plan to perform two major scales: Junior High – up to three (3) sharps and flats; HS – up to five (5) sharps and flats.

 

Percussionists should plan to play two major scales and two of the standard PAS rudiments (slow-fast-slow). Clicking percussion in each ensemble provides a rudiment sheet.
