About Unity Percussion

Unity Percussion is an independent youth, music, and arts education group located in Gainesville, Florida. Unity Percussion is part of the Unity Music & Arts, Inc. corporation and is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Unity Percussion competes in the percussion division of Winter Guard International (WGI) and Florida Federation of Colorguards Circuit (FFCC). We are comprised of students and staff within a 200-mile radius of North Central Florida under the direction of our founder, Jeremy Lee. In our four year history, we have attended WGI World Championships in Dayton, Ohio and have been a Finalist every season. During our brief competitive history, Unity has been awarded a multitude of medals which include: WGI PIA Gold Medal (2019), WGI PIA Silver Medal (2018), WGI PIA Bronze Medal (2017), FFCC PIA Gold Medal (2018 & 2017), and FFCC PIA Silver Medal (2019 & 2016).

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide youth an education in high-level performance, focused specifically on percussion. Throughout the season, the students learn music theory, instrumental techniques, marching techniques, acting, and characterization. We strive to give percussionists more direction during the symphonic season by giving them an opportunity to grow, not only as musicians but in confidence, responsibility, leadership, teamwork, and excellence.

Membership dues for this season are $1,500. Our staff members, comprised of high-level educators, are only paid for their gas expenses. Our director does not receive supplemental pay. He volunteers his time, resources and money to ensure the students have everything they need in order to be successful.
