Drum Major Camp

Get fired up to lead your high school band and take your leadership and conducting skills to the next level! These camps bring together experts in music education and leadership who will prepare you for your role as a high school Drum Major. You’ll also experience a few days in the life of Pacific Crest, even getting the opportunity to conduct the drum corps! Open to all current and prospective Drum Majors.

WHAT CAMP PARTICIPANTS HAVE TO SAY
“One of the best experiences of my leadership career!”I am amazed by what I learned in three days and can’t imagine how much more I could get out of another camp.”

“After the camp, you feel inspired to put all that you just experienced into action at your own school. It also gives you more than one way of leading your band rather than the ‘right and only way’ of being a Drum Major.”

“Each participant walks away with new skills, techniques and strategies. I have attended multiple years and always come out with a new experience.”

“It’s like learning all the secrets from the successful.”
