About Full Force Percussion

Entering its second season of competition, Full Force Percussion brings a unique vision of percussion performance to the contest world and fans everywhere.  The group is sponsored by the VK Youth Arts Organization.

Full Force Percussion was founded in the spring of 2006. They are currently under the sponsorship of the VK Youth Arts Organization. They are a feeder organization for the Velvet Knights Drum and Bugle Corps. Since then, Full Force Percussion has received numerous awards in SCPA, ADLA, and WGI, as well as placing 2nd at WGI World Championships with a 93.25 during the 2008 season.

Our Goal:

The goal of Full Force Percussion is to provide individuals with musical talents with the opportunity to compete in a world organization, experience a new side to indoor marching percussion, see a more intense competition, gain more experience as a musician, and of course, make new friends. Members will perform and rehearse on a weekly basis under the instruction of a world class staff.

While at Full Force Percussion, individuals will learn to work as a unit to achieve a common goal and mature as a percussionist. Of course, individuals will have lots of fun doing what they love to do, and that is drum!!

Our Mission Statement:

The mission of Full Force Percussion is to provide the members with life changing experiences, educationally and socially, which help each individual member gain real world life skills, musical training and performance experiences. Through the development of the character traits of dedication, discipline and teamwork, each member of this close knit performing unit learns what is required to be successful on and off the performance floor.

Participation with Full Force Percussion instills confidence, quality of character and a strong work ethic that cannot be taught in any high school, college or university and is desirable in the real world workplace. But most of all, our mission is to provide a positive, healthy, and most of all, FUN experience for all members in the world of indoor marching percussion.
