Drum Major Camp

2014_DM_Vertical_BannerWATCH: Drum Major Camp Video –>

Get fired up to lead your high school band and take your leadership and conducting skills to the next level! Entering its seventh year, the Pacific Crest Drum Major Camp brings together experts in music education and leadership who will work with you one-on-one to prepare you for your role as a high school drum major. You’ll also experience a few days in the life of Pacific Crest, sharing drum corps style lodging and meals, rehearsing with, and even conducting the corps! Open to current and prospective Drum Majors.

“I sent both of my drum majors to the PC drum major camp. They came back completely on fire, totally inspired…I think the camp was fantastic.”
-Samantha Theisen – Band Director, Moorpark High School

“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.”
