This series of video lessons will provide students and instructors alike with a comprehensive introduction to the fundamental techniques for the marching cymbal line. From basic positions, “bring-ups” and playing techniques to cymbal maintenance and stretching routines, Zildjian’s Marching Cymbals 101 will cover the foundation for creating a highly skilled cymbal section.

ABOUT THE SANTA CLARA VANGUARD:
The Santa Clara Vanguard Drum & Bugle Corps is our World Class performing ensemble and one of the founding groups of Drum Corps International (DCI). Formed in 1967, Vanguard (A-Corps) travels between ten and twelve weeks each summer throughout the United States performing in competitive field shows and parades.

Vanguard won its first championship title in 1970 at the American Legion Championships and went on to win the coveted Veterans of Foreign War Championships in 1971. Vanguard has won seven DCI World Class Championship titles (1973, 1974, 1978, 1981, 1989, 1999, 2018) and holds the distinction of being the only drum corps to make Finals every year since DCI was formed in 1972.

The SCV percussion section has won the prestigious Fred Sanford High Percussion award 14 times, including most recently in 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018. The section is under the direction of Paul Rennick, a leading figure in the world of marching percussion and percussion education and 2017 inductee to the DCI Hall of Fame.

ABOUT ARMEEN GHAFOURPOUR:
Armeen Ghafourpour is a cymbal technician for both the Santa Clara Vanguard A-Corps and Cadets Corps. He marched in the Cadets Corps in 2008 and 2009 under percussion caption head Kohei Mizushima, and in the 2010 and 2011 A-Corps under Murray Gusseck and Paul Rennick respectively.

As a student at both West Valley College and later San Jose State University, Armeen studied classical performance in the studio of Professor Bruce Moyer, and graduated with a B.M. in Double Bass Performance. As a strings educator, he maintains a studio of private students and coaches with groups such as Saratoga High School, Mountain View High School, and the San Jose Youth Chamber Orchestras. As an educator he works to combine the best of both his musical worlds, as he presents philosophies of focus, work ethic, and dedication learned from pageantry with his knowledge and experience as a classical orchestral musician.
