The Marching Band Division at the Music for All Summer Symposium offers students inspiring experiences! This program is ideal for section leaders, with staff from some of the best high schools in America teaching innovative, current, and relevant information on music and marching fundamentals. The curriculum is challenging for all levels. The marching band division teaches more than just marching and music. Students learn the basic principles of dance and body movement. They learn how to communicate with section-mates, and how to read drill charts and clean drill. We are laser-focused on fundamentals and development of the individual, both musically and visually. Students learn skills that are applicable to all band programs and we encourage them to take these skills back to their own bands to grow in a positive direction.

Carolina Crown Drum & Bugle Corps
Corps-in-Residence

Music for All is pleased, to welcome Carolina Crown, corps-in-residence, to the 2022 Summer Symposium. Marching Band students will work with Carolina Crown teaching staff, rehearse with the Corps, and perform on the field for a combined performance at the DCI Central Indiana drum corps show Friday night. Students will go “Inside the Circle” with Carolina Crown and experience the world class champions in a way that few are allowed. This will all truly be an incredible, life-changing experience!

Two performance opportunities

The Marching Band division students will perform on field with Carolina Crown, Friday evening, July 1, 2022. Tickets are available through DCI at dci.org.

Marching Band students will also perform Saturday, July 2, as part of the camp “final performances” for campers, parents, and families (note: this performance is not with the drum corps).
