Summer Sessions 2020

Today is the first official day of Summer Sessions in preparation to make the 2020 edition of The Best Damn Band In The Land. We are so excited to see the improvement that candidates make as people and as players.

If you have yet to sign up for Summer Sessions, it is not too late. Visit the link below to sign up. Afterwards, you will be placed into a Google Classroom where fundamental videos will be made available. Furthermore, squad leaders will send personalized feedback on candidate’s marching and playing.

We hope that you have remained safe and well during this time. We cannot wait to get back and drum together!

Drive, Drive, Drive…

Future Sectionals

Due to The Ohio State University’s policy on moving school to online instruction for the rest of the semester, we will not be having sectionals until at least Wednesday, April 1st. We will send an announcement closer to that date in regards to whether or not we will hold the sectional.

In the meantime, don’t hesitate in asking last year’s squad leaders questions that you may have. Instead of viewing the interim time as an interruption, view it as an opportunity to work ahead. Keep bumping the tempos up, focus on the fundamentals, get new rep under the hands, and keep preparing for the summer and beyond. You are only as good as you practice!

Until next time,

Go Bucks!

3/4 Sectional

It’s the start of spring break for us, but that does not mean that the progress stops! The tempo goals remain the same from last week (which can be found in our previous post), but we encourage you to push your hands and get better. In addition, now is a great time to get ahead and learn the rest of Buckeye Technique.

We’ll meet back on the 18th. Until then,

Go Bucks!
