Summer Schedule and Information for New Members

For all new (and old) members of the Wando Percussion Section, welcome to the start of a new season and school year, even though we’re not quite done with the last one yet.  We have a lot to accomplish this coming year, and it all starts with some good preparation.  To start, we have several summer rehearsals to plan for:

  • June 17th, 18th, & 19th
    • 8:00-12:00 – Rookies & Full Drumline
    • 1:00-5:00 – All
  • July 8th, 9th, & 10th
    • 8:00-12:00 – All
    • 1:00-5:00 – All
  • July 22nd, 23rd, & 24th
    • 8:00-12:00 – All
    • 1:00-5:00 – All
  • Band Camp – August 5th – 9th (Full schedule TBA)
  • Band Camp Week 2 – August 12th – 15th (Full schedule TBA)

Please email me regarding ANY conflicts you have with the summer schedule, whether you are going to Germany, have a birthday party to attend, or if you are sick.  It is very important to come to every rehearsal ready to learn, ready for the heat, and ready for some physical exertion.  Wear lots of sunscreen, and bring water in something like this:

Lastly, do a lot of preparation on the exercises, and any music that is posted here before that date.  We will go over all the music and exercises as a group, but will be as good as the preparation you all put in beforehand.  Just as a guide, try and have the following exercises down in this order:

  1. 87695
  2. Rap Battle
  3. Wandouble Triple
  4. Triplet Roll (Basses on snare part at first)
  5. Roll Exercise #5
  6. MO
  7. Paradiddles
  8. Sanford Shuffle

All exercises can be found here

Learn music as it gets posted, and we’ll be good to go.  Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions by emailing me

Looking forward to the year!
