NEW! Percussion Ensemble for Junior High Students
We are happy to offer an exciting new performing opportunity for Jr. high percussionists. This year, HSE High School will be offering a percussion club just for the students of Fall Creek Junior High and HSE Junior High. At this club, students will be taught how to play a variety of different percussion instruments as well as learn percussion ensemble music that we will perform as part of HSE Percussion’s Winter Concert on November 28th. We will also offer the club second semester when the group will perform at a show sponsored by the Indiana Percussion Association, as well as at the HSE Spring Percussion Concert (date TBA)
When and where will the club meet?
The club will meet at Hamilton Southeastern High School in the percussion room (H127) on Mondays from 3:00 to 5:00 beginning on September 11.
How much will the club cost?
Participation in the ensemble will be $150 per semester (average $15 per rehearsal). This fee is to cover the cost of instruction, a light snack that will be provided prior to each rehearsal, a T-shirt, a Stick/Mallet kit, contest entry and transportation. For comparison, the YMCA after school program costs $36 a week for 1 to 2 days of after school activities. So, the Percussion Ensemble Club by comparison is a great value! Families with financial need may inquire about a scholarship. Do not let money be a deterrent!
How will my student get to HSE High School?
Most busses from FCJ already make a stop at HSE as part of their routes. FCJ students should just get off the bus at HSE. If your student’s bus does not go to HSE, they can ride a different bus over. From HIJ, bus 266 goes to the high school every day as part of its route. HIJ students will simply ride that bus instead of their regular bus.
Please register by September 8th!
