Drumline Information

The Western Thunder Drumline consists of marching snare drum, tenors, bass drums, and cymbals.  Students need to complete and audition so that we can place you on the instrument that fits you and the line best.  This audition will be done over the summer through a video submission.  We will update due dates and required material soon.  In order to prepare for that audition, we suggest that students check out our WTMB Drumline YouTube Channel: https://youtu.be/btrU-GxE_Hc    This will serve as a source for teaching and audition information for all students interested in the drumline.  Students should also check out our drumline packet which houses all of our exercises, cadences, and teaching techniques.  Specific audition requirements and due dates will be available soon.
