Parents and Educators,

Your students are in good hands while marching with the Impulse Drum and Bugle Corps!

Six of our staff members are California credentialed educators; three are band directors while another three are K-12 grade teachers.

Every staff member is currently active in scholastic pageantry as an instructor, clinician or adjudicator.

Interested Brass, Percussion and Color Guard Students,

At Impulse, you will learn from experienced instructors from the top organizations in the drum corps activity!

Fourteen of our staff members marched with or instructed the following DCI finalist corps:

Blue Devils, Blue Stars, Boston Crusaders, Cadets, Cavaliers, Freelancers, Phantom Regiment, Santa Clara Vanguard, Sky Ryders, Spirit and Velvet Knights from Anaheim

All four of our color guard instructors performed with the 2009 WGI Independent World Class Silver Medalist Corona Winter Guard.

Impulse is still accepting brass players and color guard performers to come and join the fun!

We also are searching for two keyboard players to perform in our new synthesizer section!

The beginning of the 2009 drum corps season is just around the corner, come and see what Impulse has to offer at our next rehearsal:

Date: Sunday, May 17th, 2009
Time: 8:30 AM – 6:00 PM
Location: Santa Ana High School, 520 W. Walnut St., Santa Ana, CA 92701

If you are under 18 years of age, a parent or legal guardian must accompany you to sign in at your first rehearsal.
