    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...

    How do I demand my band to watch me

    when they are out marching on the field. I am confident in my part, I conduct every beat, I sing parts of the show that are a little weak, and I give counts when things get shaky. I was told by our former drum major that I have to "demand it from them". I think I'm doing that...

    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.
