Marching Band involves learning marching fundamentals, memorization of the music & drill, & rehearsals that synchronize music & motion.  Training for the season consists of a three-week process that ingrains the skills that will be used throughout the season.

Week 1 

Rehearsals in the morning with sectionals in the afternoons.  Members learn marching fundamentals, Pre-game, Stand Tunes, & all "functional" music & moves that will be used during the season.

Week 2

Rehearsals run all day.  About "seven weeks" of normal rehearsal time is condensed into this period of time.  The show is learned, fundamentals are ingrained, & esprit de corps is built through team-building activities.


Week 3

This time serves as the last completely undistracted opportunity to focus on our show.    

Camp attendance mandatory for all Marching Rebels.

What to bring?

  • Light weight athletic clothes (no pants, boots, etc.) that’s comfortable to move in

  • Water bottle

  • Hat/sunglasses (optional)

  • 1” 3-ring binder with sheet protectors (for music and drill)
