Lakeland Drum Line
The Percussion Ensemble is a curricular extension of the Percussion Class designed for any student who can musically qualify for membership. This ensemble will focus on developing fundamental techniques and skills necessary to play a variety of percussion instruments in an ensemble setting. This ensemble will focus on both marching and concert aspects of percussion performance. After school rehearsal and performances are mandatory.
The Lakeland High School Band is made up of several ensembles that collectively form the band program as a whole. The Florida School Music Association forbids any student with a cumulative GPA below 2.0 from performing in any type of Music Performance Assessment, including marching, concert, and solo & ensemble festivals. All students are therefore expected to successfully maintain this minimum GPA in order to be productive members of the band program.
All band classes and activities at Lakeland High School are governed by the Polk County Fine Arts curriculum, and also by the Sunshine State Standards for secondary music classes.
