auditioning for drum corps

Posted: Wed Oct 03, 2012 5:09 pm



Can anyone tell me what it's like to try out for a drum corps? I live in North Carolina and I want to try out for crown or gold. I pretty sure I wouldn't make it but I'd like to know my skill level. Also, do drum corps members have sex? My mom thinks I'd have sex with everybody and I'm trying to convince her otherwise. Thanks.

There are countless threads about this in the DCI forum..and several in the general forum I'd wager

My summer consisted of horny little 16 year olds trying to have sex at every possible moment, so she does have a legitimate concern. It was gross.

Tasha told me some pretty funny stories about this.

Yes, it does happen. No, it's not a requirement, so you can pretty much avoid any sexual interaction involving you. You could (more like should) get your section on board with putting tour-toys after getting good so you can get better. I had a section leader who was always with his tour-toy, to the point to where it conflicted with the rest of the bass line getting better. That guy got his spot taken away from him, and when we had someone more capable, we made loads of improvement. So it's definitely a choice, so I wouldn't worry about it too bad.

Tour toy. Great phrase. The number of people in drum corps who cheat on their significant other is too damn high, haha
I play and teach music (sometimes even band music!)

I work in music tech and licensing.

Music is an art and positive energy.

I made it through a summer without cheating on my significant other. Like people have said before, the sex happens, just like it would for those individuals if they weren't on tour. However, if you're not one of the people that is all about it, you can avoid it for sure. I had the opportunities to do what I wanted that way, but I was able to stay away from it almost entirely. As for that whole thing hindering the progress of the corps, it should be put off until after you start getting drumline chemistry going on the field and you start getting better. It will get in the way of the section to a certain extent, especially with younger groups, if you let it be an issue.

Yeah, that's basically what happened this summer. The horny 16 year olds part, I mean. Good times.

Drum corps sex? How does this happen? I thought you were too busy for that. And aren't you constantly watched?

My motto is go to play drums, and only to play drums. No tour toy = better drum bander.

I'd expand upon your questions and the subject, but it's such a minuscule, unimportant, completely optional side of the activity, it's not even worth discussing. I can guarantee you that the best players out there weren't worrying about tour toys before, during, or after auditions. You don't need to know, you shouldn't care, and you should just drum.

Where there's a will, there's a way. And keep in mind that there are dark bus rides, free days, laundry days, and whatever.

Yeah really. Those who want to do it and can do it will do it. Those that can't or don't want to won't. It's almost as if drum corps is still real life (sorta...).
