Scales and RudimentsThe following documents are the PMEA scale requirements & percussion rudiments. Any student who wishes to audition for a PMEA festival must have these scales memorized. You may print out a copy for yourself. We use these frequenetly in band rehearsal. Percussionists must have the first 13 rudiments memorized by the end of 8th grade. These may take a few moments to load...please be patient.
