This intensive camp is for the highly motivated high school student who is looking for a fun, high-energy instructional experience. The Washington Marching Band Camps Drumline Academy is limited in size to 36 percussionists; so as to provide each camper with a small student/instructor ratio allowing the camp staff to effectively diagnose and apply instructional methods based on the strengths, and weaknesses of each student.
Drumline participants will receive instruction in the following areas:
- Performance fundamentals appropriate to the contemporary drumline
- Effective running of a drumline sectional rehearsal
- Defining and cleaning drumline marching fundamentals
- Visual techniques
*Campers participating in the drumline component of the camp will be instructed and rehearsed primarily from a drumline setting. Drumline participants should have prior marching percussion experience and capable of playing rhythms comparable to a minimum of grade 4 repertoire.
