Product Details

Being a great technical musician is important, but in the marching activity that is only half the battle. An common issue in our activity is that drumlines will play really well standing still, but the second they get on the move, it blows up.

How well you play during a standstill DOES NOT MATTER in the competitive sense of the activity. So it is crucial you take the physical aspect of what you do just as serious as the playing. And there are two sides to this. There is the technical execution and style of your marching technique, and there is also BEING IN SHAPE which a lot of people overlook

Drumline Movement was written to teach our students a world-class way to work on marching technique and physical fitness preparing them to have an amazing season.
