Yeah. I kinda figured that. But can't blame him. He's the one that got me really wanting to persue percussion and get better at it.

Hello Friends! :P

My name is Jordan Bible and I'm a freshman at Hardin Valley Academy in Knoxville, TN. Currently I am a member of the Front Ensemble(Pit), in which I play the vibes. I have taken part in this percussion program for one and a half years(I did indoor as an eighth grader).
I have joined this forum to gain some advice and tips for marching snare. I'm interested in trying out for snare next year. I've already talked to my teacher and he has told me to get a private teacher and join a forum(which I have here).
Also, I can add to the front ensemble section of this forum, I believe.

All in all, That's it for now!

Thanks, The DrummingHawk.

Hey,

My name is Ken Tabor. I live in Austin, TX originally from Spring, TX. I marched snare drum for 3 years in highschool. I then went to "The Commandant's Own Marine Drum and Bugle Corps". I always wished I went to DCI after I graduated Highschool, but I'm glad I earned the title Marine. My home is RudimentalDrumming.com, but I wanted to come over here and be apart of this community as well. I think Optsyn is an Admin here and goes back and forth as well.

I just started posting youtube videos with all the visuals I've learned over the years and now I'm starting to throw down some notes. My goal is to help people get to the level I was able to attain, and I just generally enjoy drumming and sharing it with everyone.

Keep Drummin!

Am I the only one joining this forum since Oct. 2010? ... Anyways...

Hi,

My name is David. I'm 24 and live in Basel, Switzerland. I play the "Basel drum" since I'm 6 and got interested in snare drumming when I saw a DCI video on youtube a few years ago. I have recently decided to learn more about it and found this awesome forum.

Ummm... yeah. I don't know what else to write so If you have any questions feel free to ask! :)

Thanks,
David

Hello all.

This is Greg Jackson from Columbus, Ohio.

I marched snare for Marion Harding High School in Marion, Ohio from 1989-1992.

Taught there from 1993-2004.
Taught at Mt. Gilead High School, Westerville South High School (current), Otterbein College.

Started up Level Seven Percussion (PIO & PIA) (defunct) in 2007.

I marched snare drum for the Reading Buccaneers in 2005, 2006, & 2007.

I love the snare drum. The notes are like heaven to me.

I am a Project Manager at M+A Architects in Columbus, Ohio - and am looking forward to the day we design and build an indoor drumline facility specifically designed for that purpose and nothing else. Anybody have the capital?

I'm from the Cleveland area. Expect a PM from me sometime about Buccaneers. I've been down there for auditions before, but couldn't march because I had auditions and such for the different colleges of musical arts. But I plan on going down again for snare within the next couple of years.

Oh, and welcome to the forum.

'Tabor' is easily the perfect last name for a snaredrummer, you be a boss.

I'm Tyler Whitney
I'm from all over the states, but my dad just retired Army and now we're settled in Beijing. I got into snare drumming after I did pit earlier this year to appease my friend after sucking at drumline audition, I had no idea what I was doing. Now, thanks in part to this site, I am a boss, but now since there are absolutely no drumlines, percussion ensembles, etc, I have to channel through pep band. Ugh.

Hey guys my name is Patrick. I am 15 years old and I live in Fairfax Station, VA. I am a freshman at South County Secondary School in Lorton, VA. I've been playing drums since 7th grade. During the fall i played in the pit for the school marching band and in the winter i played in the pit for the indoor drumline (we just got back from Dayton at 5 this morning). My goal is to march in a world class drumline or to play in GMU's drumline. I guess that's all I have to say :mrgreen:

Hey everyone. My name is Joe. I've been lurking around this site for quite a while, so I finally decided to introduce myself. I'm a sophomore at North Atlanta High School. I've played violin since 5th grade and tuba since 6th grade. Recently I became interested in playing percussion. I am in a percussion class in my school and hope to be on the drum line next year as well as a percussionist in symphonic band. In the near future, I would like to start working on music theory and composing. I plan on music being a life long hobby.

Argh, me name be Odin! Or Shawn, whichever you prefer! I'm a college grad, currently working as a geologist in the Northeast. Played snare in my college marching band and regularly attended DCI camps for fun. I'm a big science nerd and promoter and still regularly chop out on my new invader pad whenever possible. That's really about it for me ^_^

Hey guys! I'm Jesse, I'm 16 and I've been a percussionist for five years (about to be six) and I go to Cinco Ranch High School. As lame and cliche as it sounds, I fell in love with tenors, marching, DCI, WGI etc. at the beginning of my sophomore year. I'm working as hard as i can to try to make a drum corps before I graduate high school. I just want to learn and drum and yeah haha :D Oh and I joined this forum to meet other drummers and learn from them and just chill with people that have the same passion as me. so yeah! Pm if you ever have anything to teach because i'm willing to learn!

Hi, my name is Parker, I enjoy snare drumming. I don't play snare drum that often in class but when I do, my director is impressed. I'm in 7th grade so no line yet. My highschool does not have a line but I intend on eventually auditioning for a corps. I end up starting alot of stuff without meaning it. Really I mean to just add some fun, and someone takes it too seriously. I am always looking forward to learning new tricks and tips for drumming.

My youtube channel is in my sig, so check it. Subscribe for weekly/bi-weekly progress.

:D Hi, my name is Azucena 'Doc' Novelo (Doc because I tend to be the one everyone goes to for first aid advice and I also am one big unfortunate event after another)

I started out as an orch dork, got too boring, joined band on flute, too boring, played tenor sax, too boring, and finally found my true calling in the line of drums that we call Drumline at my highschool last year(10th grade)

Bass drum moving to tenors soon, YAY!

Anywho, that's me. I play snare when we're waiting for uniform inspection and bus arrival which is fun because snare battles with my friends are hilarious(I never win, boo)
"No one has their drill papers? BS it."

And in the end... only one tenors person made it out alive...

Welcome to Snarescience guys! If you have any questions feel free to ask us, but before you do try using the Search Menu because your question(s) might have been asked and answered already. There's PLENTY of helpful information on here to help you become a better percussionist. So don't be a stranger because you're officially a part of the S.S. family! :D

My name is Joseph. I'm from Miami, Florida. I'm 17 and I'm a junior (soon to be senior cuz schools almost over) at Miami Killian high school. I started drumming in 7th grade but didn't take it seriously till the end of 8th grade so I guess that's really when I started. I got into rudimental drumming in the middle of 9th grade and I haven't stopped since. I'm also getting my first corps experience this summer in DCA and my all time goal is to march snare for Phantom Regiment. :D

Hello,
My name is John. I've been lurking for a little over a year but finally made an account about two weeks ago. I play snare in my high school marching band. I spend about half of time at home learning new licks and whatnot. I have been working really hard to better myself as a drummer and I plan on posting some videos to hopefully get some feedback from you guys on what else I can do to improve. Anything helps! It won't hurt to tell me I suck. I would love to be an instructor one day and this would probably make it a bit easier to do so if I here some analogies or ways of looking at things differently. That's the main reason I'm here. Have a good one!

Hello! My name is Trice. I am from west TN, and I like to play all percussion, not really just snare or mallets. I hope to someday audition for The Cadets, MCDC, or MCM. I always do my best to improve and I really love music. I am going to be a junior in high school this fall. I will also probably be on the drumline playing snare this year. I really love this site!

I kind of realized recently that I have posted quite a bit on here, yet nobody knows who I am. My name is Greg Deinlein, originally from California, but currently living in Kentucky. I have marched two marching band seasons playing snare, and two indoor seasons playing snare, and I started seriously drumming about halfway through my freshmen year. I have been a member for quite a while, and I can honestly say that the friendly people here have been super helpful and informative, and have made me a better snurr drummer!
