You must have a clean record and experience teaching youth groups ages 10 to 22. You should be a patient team player with initiative interested in assisting further development of field and standstill programs. You are enthusiastic, work well with youths, and love everything there is to love about drum corps activities. You will be responsible for teaching a range of experience levels but mostly beginners, creating routines, and working towards expanding and continue to develop our brass program. Experience with drum corps, DCA, DCI, winter units and/or marching band is ideal though we are open to similar type experiences. Please list any relevant experience in music and marching music arranging/writing . Being multilingual is a plus in either Chinese and/or Spanish but not a requirement. This is a part-time position with a year-round schedule. Times, requirements and compensation to be discussed upon contact. Please send resume and contact information to nycrimsonkings@gmail.com
  2. Do any drum corps late in this season have any Bari euph holes? I'm sure they wouldn't advertise it but I just figured I'd ask and find out.

  6. Learning Baritone to march DCI! Hello everyone! This post will serve as my personal log in my adventure to learn baritone in an effort to one day march drum corps. If this disrespects any guidelines of the forums, feel free to let me know and I'll remove accordingly. A little about me: First musical instrument I learned was the saxophone I have been playing the saxophone for 7 years (3 years alto, 4 years tenor, with some soprano and bari thrown in) I'm 18 years old and about to graduate high school (today actually!) First learned of DCI my freshman year and I've been hooked since Began learning euphonium in March of 2016 and I've performed in one concert on the instrument. (Bass clef) Goals: I'm going to college for Music Education During my college career, I hope to march drum corps (age-out Bluecoats?) I will be marching baritone next year for my college, so I hope that goes well Be proficient enough at the baritone to attend a DCI camp in the fall of 2016 Goal Corps: March World Class in 2018 Age-Out Bluecoats in 2019 Gear: Yamaha YBH301M Marching Baritone (Large Bore) Vincent Bach 5G Mouthpiece That's about it! All proceeding posts will be updates of some sort. I know these are some pretty ambitious goals. Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated, especially if you've gone through a similar process. Wish me luck!

  11. My school district has given me some money to buy some instruments, so I'm gradually trying to convert my hornline to matching horns. They are also letting me sell the instruments we're replacing. Please note: I am selling these to match my line, NOT because they are old beat-up horns. They are all in good condition. I am taking them all for sonic cleaning and maintenance before selling them. Below is what I have to sell. Let me know what you're interested in. Prices are negotiable if you buy 2 or more horns. Delivery negotiated based on location. I can personally deliver to most of California. F Mellophones: - Two (2) Kanstul mellophones, lacquer. Purchased new in 2007, but very well maintained and serviced. Cosmetically they are still in really nice shape. All slides and valves work like they should. Cases are solid with all working latches. Mouthpieces included. $800 each. - One (1) King mellophone, silver. This is a former Phantom Regiment horn. Plays very well. Everything works as it should. Cool metal case. Mouthpiece included. $700. Bb Baritones: - Four (4) Dynasty M570 baritones, lacquer. Purchased new in 2008. The horns all play well. The cases are solid and I have personally replaced many of the poorly designed original latches. I also have some sousaphones in a variety of conditions. If you're interested in sousaphones, let me know and I'll give you more details.
  12. I marched with Troopers in the 80s and find I still enjoy following drum corps, not only nostalgia but also keeping up with present developments and competition. I make it out to 1-2 shows a year. I look forward to the discussion and reconnecting with old friends and making new ones.

  14. Hello drum corps family! My name is Kayla Cavano and I'm a Junior Music Education/French horn performance major at Miami University in OH. I have recently been contracted to march with The Blue Devils Drum and Bugle Corps and am looking for sponsors. With paying for school, rent, and many other expenses a typical college student has to pay, an additional $3,400 plus about $1,000 in flights to CA is too great an expense to bear alone. Marching with The Blue Devils has been my dream ever since I saw my first drum corps show in 2008. However, I can't do it by myself so I'm asking for your help. After just completing our February camp, it's safe to say that this summer is going to be incredible. Being a music education major, there is nothing more valuable than marching drum corps and working with some of the best staff not only in DCI, but in the instrumental music activity. I can't wait to learn from this staff and become a better musician, athlete and educator. Marching with The Blue Devils will give me the tools to change my future students' lives. We all remember the first drum corps show we saw. For me, it was 2008 Phantom Regiment that made me fall in love with the activity. I fell even deeper in love when I saw 2009 Blue Devils. I can't wait to have that effect on someone this year. If you are willing and able, please consider making a donation to help me march this summer. My GoFundMe page is attached below, but if you would like a letter sent in the mail, send me your address and I will send one out. Thank you so much for your consideration and for helping me make my dreams become reality! https://www.gofundme.com/dmk3u9y4
  15. Does anyone have any tuba exercises that would help me increase my technique on tuba?
