  9. What bugles. are the Alumni corps playing. Do different corps use different instruments. I was a child of the 60's an played a single valve with rotary. Just curious. Grenadier
  10. I don't think this has been asked for a while and I forgot to check at the Regional last night, but which Corps use both baritones and euphoniums in their brass line? Edit: Also would be interested to know of any Corps marching only euphoniums.
  11. Free Trumpet Music!

    Hello! I'm a trumpet player and I write and play my own music, mostly for trumpet ensemble. I'd like to share with you my new in-progress web site. I just started it last night. https://www.blazingmusic.net/ I give away most or all of my music for free; let me know if you are interested. There are recordings of me playing most of it in multi-track using GarageBand. Example: https://www.blazingmusic.net/audio/trumpet4/100_fanfares_for_four_96.mp3 Sincerely, Robert Walliczek
  12. Auditioning for DCI

    Some friends and I are planning on trying out for some drum cores (crown and SOA more than likely) and were wondering if there is anything we can do to prepare ourselves for audition camps, what materials to know when going in, what to practice, and where to find the materials and exercise to practice (not talking about audition packets).
  13. It is readily becoming apparent this season that the new trend of amplifying entire hornlines (or large ensembles) is not sitting well with the fanbase. I have seen many calls for either the judges to limit rewarding or even penalize amplification of this magnitude, I've seen calls for DCI to change rules to better define what can and can't be done. All this clamoring will not do anything if confined to DCP. Action is what brings change. I ask the community, the fans, parents, and alumni, for help in drafting an open letter to DCI. We obviously have concerns, let us voice them directly. Being able to sign on to the letter will obviously be important, as there is strength in numbers. It should be disseminated as far as possible as well: to Reddit, at shows, etc. I do not know a platform that will facilitate this, so help here is appreciated. Below, I've typed out an example of what this could look like. Please help me flesh it out a bit. I will consider all criticism, as long as it is constructive. And please, keep the subject to amplification and electronics usage, this is not the proper time for an argument about rights, streaming, the fan network, etc.
  14. I've noticed several Corps are continuing to use trombones in their shows, even adding them to the drill. The following article (though quite old) just popped up on a trombone fan page I monitor on Facebook. I just thought it was interesting. Maybe that explains the looks I get from the French horn section who sit in front of me. (Or was it the intonation?) BBC Article: Shock wave from trombone filmed.

  16. The Skyliners just came off another GREAT, albeit wet weekend. The show is starting to take shape. Our excellent design team has outdone themselves! We have a few openings in the horn line (1 Trumpet, 2 Mellophones, 3 Baritones, 1 Tuba), Vibraphone players for the front ensemble, and the Sky Guard is looking for one experienced weapon and one flag. NOW is a great time to be a part of the Skyliners!
  17. I have been listening to a lot of Crown years over the past few days and it has me thinking; Is Michael Klesch the absolute BEST brass writer in DCI? I mean is there anyone else who can even touch is fantastic writing? Clearly, this is just a matter of opinion and I am absolutely sure there are writers that are just as fantastic. I am just saying, there is no other brass section I would rather listen to more in today's drum corps than Carolina Crown, and Klesch's arrangements over the years have been nothing less than stellar. And although they placed 5th in that Space show, I still find myself listening to that show relatively frequently. **This is not intended as a bashing session against other brass arrangers, rather, it is a heavy praise for someone who has given us years of spectacular musical arrangements.** I'm loving some Klesch.
  18. I am a pretty decent mellophone player already (if i say so myself), but i want to know how to become the best I can possibly be. I am trying out for DCI this fall/winter and want to come fully prepared. Any and all tips will be acknowledged. What can I do to improve my tone, range, musicality, sight reading, or tuning. You do NOT have to be a mellophone payer for me to listen. Again any info/tips will be used.
  19. Hey guys, I marched baritone last year and I regret not marching again. I hate looking in from the outside. That being said, are there any baritone or euph holes at any world class corps?

  21. Highschool Mellophone section

    This will be my second year being a section leader in my school's mellophone section and the other day I was watching one of our videos and noticed how out of tune we are with eachother. Is there anything I can do to fix this or improve it? It will be my senior year and want this to be our best year. better view but older competition
  22. I plan on trying out for spirit of Atlanta for my first year in DCI and was wondering on how selective it was for mellophone in particular. I'm going to give it my all no matter what but I was just curious. Also, any tips for preparing for auditions and the auditions themselves would be incredibly appreciated!
