Drum Majoring, AHOY!
« on: April 28, 2010, 09:44:31 pm »
Not this year, no. But I'm shooting hell for a drum major position on the podium next year! 8D

I'm so excited. I'm going to tryouts Friday just for the experience so I know what to expect in tryouts next year; we've been training all week, and I've got conducting down as much as I can for only three days of proper education in...the conducting...ways. o.O Lolwut. Anywho. I'm excited.

Anyone else ever attempted to drum major? I think it'll be hella fun. c:

I haven't tried out, becuase I'm only a sophomore. It looks interesting and fun though. I probably won't do it though because I am too shy. Good luck in getting the position though!

Drum major...fill me in on this. Is it like, a marching band, or jazz band type of thing? Or am I completely off? xD

A drum major conducts the marching band, and leads the band in the parades and stuff.

I drum majored at my high school the last two years first as assistant then as a co. Drum Majoring is a great experience both in the development of leadership skills and in developing as a musician.  It is hella fun, especially in lineup for awards (if you compete) and during performances, but it's also hella work.  Have fun with the tryout process and good luck next year!
The most important thing to remember on the internet is to have a thick skin because accidentally burning your fingers on your computer is no fun at all.

I was in marching band as the first chair alto sax for two years.  It was a freaking BLAST!  I quit to pursue my writing goals though, and to keep up with AP classes.
Hey, you should totally wear a tail with your uniform XD give a little wag to the judges, see if it affects your scores.
