The percussion ensemble is under the direction of Mr. Andrew Leib. Currently the percussion students meet everyday during 1st block. Because of the specialized nature of the percussion instruments, students in the percussion class are able to focus on developing fundamentals and techniques that would normally not get covered in a full band class with mixed instrumentation. This setup allows the students to get "in depth" exposure to the wide ranging techniques required to be a "well-round" percussionists. Mr. Leib's students regularly participate in honors auditions and frequently are selected to perform with ensembles such as; All-County Band, All-County Orchestra and All-District Band.
In 2014, the Ragsdale percussion ensemble performed the first Annual "Evening of Percussion Concert" feature the percussion students of Ragsdale High School and Jamestown Middle School. The concert was a first for both programs and will be expanded in coming years.
