MIDDLE SCHOOL PERCUSSION
 
The North Allegheny Middle School Percussion Ensemble is an extra­curricular ensemble at North Allegheny designed for percussionists of all levels Grades 7 through 8.  Participation in percussion ensemble is strongly recommended for all percussionists wishing to improve their playing abilities as well as perform percussion specific music. This ensemble also serves as a prep class for high school percussion programs, helping to familiarize students with the high school program, and utilizes additional help from current high school students. 
 
This ensemble rehearses during the fall and early winter once per week for an hour and a half at the Senior High School, and performs as part of the annual Night of Percussion concert at the end of December each year.
 
The Middle School Percussion Ensemble is directed by Matt Gillott.
