A 'bang-up' Job!

I am pleased to announce that we've expanded our Music Programme even further with the addition of a Drum Line under the capable tutelage of our mad physicist and paramount musician, Mr. DJ DeCoste. Drum lines have always been a most popular entity in the United States and recently growing in popularity in Canadian high schools. With the whole-hearted support of our School Administration and Finance Department, I have acquired 5 new Yamaha marching snare drums, 3 new bass drums, 3 new pair of Sabian crash cymbals and 1 new quad tom tom drum, all with carrying racks, stands, sticks and mallets. Added to that are other drums that I have had in inventory for quite some time. This new endeavour has been embraced by Major Keith Hynes, and this select group is now part of our routine Cadet training, working as a dedicated platoon. To give you a peek at the equipment and the group’s intentions, I have filmed their 1st practice which shows them preparing for an Open House demonstration. With the exception of one or two students, everyone is learning their new musical skill for the first time. At the moment, Mr. DeCoste has them focusing on time, integration, synchronicity, and fundamental rudiments, all with a dash of maneuvers. I am confident that as our School year unfolds, this conscientious ensemble will do a 'bang-up' job! Please click here to watch the video.
