Hi, I'm Lucy. I'm 16 and I march in high school (cymbals last year, tri-tenors this year, quints or snare next year. He hasn't set the line yet) and play kit at home
Hoping to march bass with a college line in the east coast area (looking at umass and rutgers) and then a corps, whether it's dci or dca. Whatever I can make and pay for, although the bluecoats are my dream corps.
I like playing tenors and snare too, but I love bass splits too much to actually want to march on them.

Hi, I'm Walker. I've been in the High School band and Indoor percussion at Clinton High School (Clinton, MS) for two years now. I'm in 10th grade, 16 years old. Last Year I played Bass 2 in Marching band and Bass 5 in Indoor. We received 2nd in A class at Dayton last indoor season. This year, I met my goal of making the snare line, having a successful marching season, and receiving 1st place in Percussion at state championships. Now I'm currently playing snare this indoor season, and we're competing on Open class in WGI and World Class in the state. I decided to join SnareScience mainly because I feel that it can be nothing beneficial for me to have a community that does what I love to do. I just wanted to introduce myself and say Hi.

Hello,

My name is Rich and I'm 25 years old. I drummed in the Etiwanda High School Marching Eagle Regiment from 2003-2006. I was center quad for two seasons. I studied under Chris Romanowski my first year and then Pete Sapadin for the rest of the time. I never marched corps and I was told I would regret it if I didn't. Fast forward eight years and I'm now a law enforcement officer at a university out here in Colorado. I was on patrol a couple months ago and I saw our drumline practicing. I stopped by, said hi, and watched them for a while and then I got, "the itch," again. When I got home I pulled out my old quad pad, bought some new sticks and started drumming again. I'm still working out some of the cob webs and I'm starting to get my chops back, but I still have a ways to go. Now I am seeing what my instructors meant by, "You'll regret not doing corps.

At least I'm drumming again.

Howdy, everyone. I used to be an active member on this site about 5 or more years ago, but then stopped. And now I'm back! I'm mostly a drumset drummer but I'm very interested in rudimental drumming.

Hello, my name is Gabriel and I'm in my last year of high school drum corps with three years of experience playing bass 3 and I'm marching snare this year. I love studying rudimental drumming and I've recently started playing a little drumkit. Ryan Wold's youtube channel has taught me a lot and pointed me to this forum which has taught me even more and kept me up to date with the marching scene. I've been kind of a lurker for the past few months checking out this site and I'm glad to say that I've decided to make an account. I hope to not just learn things but also help other people learn things as a community. Thanks for reading! :D

Hi, I'm Matt.

My "career" isn't much of a career, but I was the 1988 Arizona PAS rudiment champion. It's a lame thing to boast about because it was eons ago, but credibility is what it is. (I won in spite of including several ill-advised jokes about Rob Carson, who was a judge, as part of my solo ... I cringe at the thought today).

I never marched DCI because I was an awful student, but I was lucky enough to work with some amazing instructors in high school, including Randall Beach and Mark Adams. I drop their names here because I'd love to connect with other folks from that era (or reconnect).

My life has settled in nearly 30 years beyond high school, and I'm taking this stuff up as a hobby. I never really stopped playing, but when you haven't picked up sticks and really gone after the cheese in three decades ... the fulcrum gets a little creaky and wobbly.

I'm hoping to learn from all of you, young and old.

Hey, guys.

I started playing trapset when I was about 8 and began mallet percussion when I was 11. I played in my high schools Marching Band and Indoor Drumline for 5 years, my first 3 in the pit and my last 2 on snare drum. Now I'm a freshman Criminology/Sociology major at Penn State, where I am on the cymbal line. I'm hoping to audition for some WGI groups next season, and if my finances will ever permit, I'd love to march drum corps.

I never got very good at set, but I'd say I'm decent at other areas of percussion. I also play guitar and keyboard, sing, and I really enjoy acting.

I've been using snarescience for a few years now as a place to find new warm ups and transcriptions, read, etc., and I have finally decided to join. So here I am and I look forward to learning even more here. :)

Hi I'm 13 and I'm from Malaysia. Beginner but I'm getting by day(i think :P ) and I love the Bluecoats and it's like a pretty huge yet impossible dream to March for them because I don't live in the USA. Anyways,it's a pleasure to be on this site.
