During marching season, Drumline is the percussion section of the band. This group has instructors who hold additional rehearsal times outside of class – students are expected to attend these rehearsals.  It is vital to the success of the program.

The Winter Drumline is a competitive drumline show whose season begins as soon as marching band ends.  Their performances are in gyms and judged by a judging association. The drumline consists of the battery (snare drums, tenor drums, bass drums and cymbals) and the pit (keyboards, guitars, marimbas, chimes, and all other assorted percussion instruments).The battery marches within the basketball court lines, while the pit is stationary.

Clinics are held in the late spring.  Attendance is strongly encouraged; clinics are necessary to ensure that all students are using a similar technique and can begin learning the music for the upcoming season.
