I just came across this "Accent Marching Academy" on facebook...curious if anyone has heard about this or attended one of the sessions. Any thoughts? Looks like an interesting mix of corps are represented on the clinicians/staff section.

Not to beat a dead horse, but is this the same Chris Nagy who "ran" Eclipse of Indiana a few years back?

Also, $400 for camp?! Are you kidding?

uh oh...

this probably means if you see anyone's name that you recognize on the "clinician" list, you should tell them.

drum corps in a dome sucks; turn down the pit amps

My opinions represent every corps I have ever seen perform, both live and on video/dvd.

Well, hopefully someone who attended their clinic in Atlanta this past weekend will tell us how it went. If it went.

For those who don't know what Dan is talking about, he's referring to this thread from 2010.

According to their website, it sounds like drum corps and marching band training.

It's kind of confusing, it sounds like people are selected to do it based on their wording, but I imagine anyone can register for it...
Also, read the FAQS, they are very strange. Funny things I noticed-
They will take the keys from your car!
Also, don't break anything, or you will pay!

I recognize a few of the names of the clinicians, they are people who have marched Drum Corps and would be good instructors.

I think the $400 price tag is very expensive.

Perhaps, but the same FAQ page instructs that all participants must stay in the official housing site in same gender rooms, four to a room. It's not cheap to find hotels that have rooms with four beds.

PS: It also says the parking is free.

I also notice that the cost is not only a $400 fee and mandatory $10 warmup packet, but also a $14.35 transaction fee.
So, $424.35.
