Drumline consists of the battery (snare drums, tenor drums, bass drums, and cymbals) and the pit (marimbas, vibes, bells, synths, and auxiliary). Drumline performs a wide variety of musical styles. The class combines performance/competition preparation with technical and musical instruction at the introductory level through advanced level. Membership requires dedication and commitment to participate fully in rehearsals, field trips, performances, and regional/national competitions outside of regular school hours. An important focus of this course is the preparation and presentation of public performances.
