MARCHING PANTHERS (Fall Semester)

This Ensemble consisting of woodwind, brass, percussion instruments and dancers provides learning opportunities that enable students to: (1) Demonstrate proper marching technique and maneuvers (field and street) in the execution of drill routines and field formations with and without playing; (2) Develop a keen sense of teamwork; (3) Develop skills in self-improvement and evaluation. This ensemble studies, rehearses and performs a wide variety of musical styles, forms and genres from the Grade 2, 3 and 4 repertoire. Student comprehension will be monitored by frequent evaluations. If you have any questions regarding the Marching Panthers contact Mr. Brinkman at 259-5301 ext. 45792 or abrinkman@msdwt.k12.in.us ​
