Listen To The Music!

In order to excel as a musician you must not only hone your craft by practicing & playing you must also listen to others play. Marching Band is unique that it’s equal parts performance art and music. It’s not enough to sound killer you have to march like a soldier, have the focus and awareness of a professional athlete. Do yourself a favor and don’t just listen but watch these videos. What one band can do, so can another.
