No experience necessary to attend the drumline camp – bring a great attitude and have fun drumming!  All equipment, instruments, sticks & mallets, and music will be provided!  Whether you’re marching in a competitive line or don’t have experience at all, this camp is for you.  We will give you all the information needed to play in a drumline, from technique to marching with the instruments.  Open to all levels and abilities - we will cover every aspect of being a part of a marching drumline broken down into sections of snares, quads/tenors, bass drums and cymbals.  Faculty has a myriad of marching experience as well as teaching experience at all levels.  Join us and have a great time learning about the marching percussion arts!

*Students may bring sticks and practice pads from home if available*
