Re: Need some MS help
During my last several years at a 2C MS, all 7-8 perc were enrolled in the 2nd band's time slot as a percussion class. Top band and second hand had WIND rehearsals daily, and perc students could develop faster, learn all instruments, and play much more advanced lit.
For concert/contest prep, top band did after-school once a week with perc, who had no trouble fitting into the ensemble.
It was very positive for all, and it might be worth looking into with your counselor. Mine was a gem!
