Aging Out of DCI/WGI: Behind a Cart

#266after85 #makewaves

Although I’ll never be able to march DCI/WGI again, I will always have the memories and friendships I’ve made along the way. If you were ever part of my journey through this activity, thank you.

Former DCI Drum Instructor REVEALS The Correct Marching Percussion Technique (+Drum Lesson)

Take charge of your drumming career TODAY and click the link below for private lessons with me:

The marching percussion activity can be a very confusing experience, especially when you have so many instructors telling you to try their unique approach and you see Drum Corps Drumlines with their distinct techniques.

It’s hard to figure out exactly what is the right technique and who you should listen to and which DCI Drumlines you should emulate.

Well, hopefully in making this video, it’ll make things a little more clearer for you in terms of how to have the “correct” technique for drumming 🙂
