Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 36 People

    Best experience ever!

    I was drum major this last season for my marching band. I was a junior and did it all by myself. I am trying out again this year for my senior year and I can't wait! Being drum major helped me realize I want to teach. Especially music and special education.

    One. Two. Ready. Go.

    Being drum major was something I had always wanted but wasn't sure if it was possible. I tried out anyway and got it. To learn to be a drum major required we attend a leadership camp. Basically, we learned to conduct and how to act. It was a giant seminar but part of the drum...

    I am a junior in high school,

    and this is my first year as our band's drum major. We have about 60 members in our band and I am the only drum major. We compete. The band is young & very immature & we have a difficult show this year. They don't watch me for the beat when they are marching on the field. They...

    I decided to audition

    for Drum Major because I felt as though my band could be a lot better in terms of the experience and to expand out of my comfort zone by doing something I never thought I'd ever do. I'm sort of nervous about leading a band of roughly 200 kids and getting them to follow and...
