Marching Percussion Division

Marching Percussion students will be grouped by experience level for maximum learning.

At the Music for All Summer Symposium Marching Percussion Division, immerse yourself in the fundamentals of snare drum, tenor drum, bass drum, and cymbals. Music for All offers tools that will allow YOU to achieve peak performance. Hone your craft, by working with some of the current “rock stars” of the battery percussion world as well as improving skills in marching and movement! This year, Music for All is pleased to welcome back Carolina Crown, corps-in-residence, to the 2022 Summer Symposium. Percussion students will work with Carolina Crown teaching staff, view the Corps in rehearsal and enjoy a DCI Central Indiana drum corps show.

What are students saying about Percussion at America’s Camp?

I will never forget going to MFA Camp my senior year, it had such a great impact on me for the better!

Even with all of the crazy tricks & skills I learned, the environment alone was the most mind-blowing part.

With the staff’s infallible support, I get to go home a stronger, smarter, and more confident leader.
