C-Squad

C-squad are for those who are new to marching percussion but may have played in concert band or has had private lessons. This is generally for kids in grade 3 through 6. The basics and fundamentals of drumming is taught in a fun yet educational way. Grade level music is at 2-3. Progressive music theory and concepts are introduced and emphasized along with marching concepts, playing techniques and marching routines. C-squad will perform locally and on occasion with the upper squads.
