2017 Drumline Information
Welcome to the members page for the Washburn University Drumline. Below you'll find details about drumline camp, auditions, this year's music packets, and the fall drumline course. For details about marching band camp, the full performance schedule, and all other marching awesomeness,

All auditioning will demonstrate their knowledge of basic drumming technique, rudiments, and music reading.
Prepare the following:
Veterans will audition first. After all the vets, those remaining will play individually. When you're done with your audition you're free to go. Please return in time to begin the afternoon rehearsal.
NOTE: At Washburn University, our snares played matched grip.
2017 Music Packets
Below you will find three sections of music. Please download and print the first two sections immediately. Everyone will need the Warm Ups and Stand Grooves at our first rehearsal on August 11th. The Cadences will be needed on day two, August 12th. (Since you won't know your instrument placement until after auditions, you may choose to wait and print out the cadence section after auditions.)
This is your textbook for this class. Please keep it neatly in a three-ring-binder. You're responsible for having your music and a pencil at each rehearsal throughout the semester.
Keep in mind that this is all DRUMLINE ONLY music. You will have more notes to learn when you get your band music at full band camp. Get ready-we memorize everything!
