Marching Band Problems

RSS

Ay yo, only girl timpani player in all of the counties around us here B) but the drum line is so judgmental of me; probably because I'm the only girl drummer the drum line's had in like forever. Oh well, let them hate.

The struggle is real.  There was a lot of tension in the drum line before the veterans acclimated to the rookies in my band.  

did someone say guard

I think someone said guard

Ok so I'm going to be in marching band next year and I play the bass clarinet today (middle school) I REALLY do not want to play the clarinet for marching season then back to bass clarinet ( I suck ass at clarinet) . I've been really wanting to be a percussionist... Do u think I got a shot? Any tips?

Percussion will not be easy, I’m telling you right now.

Switching over to drum line (especially from a wind section, I imagine) takes a lot of discipline and a slew of new skill and information.  (Also prepare your back for carrying around that 50-100 lb drum).  If you have the option, I would definitely recommend not skipping to snare or quads; it’s best to start out in the cymbal or bass line, or in the pit if you want.  

The struggle is worth the lessons, though.  You should definitely give it a shot!

You are perfection. <3

No you are. <3
