New to Marching Band?
It can be a little daunting to learn the terms and insider tricks of the marching band world.
Here’s a brief terminology overview for newbies.
Don’t forget to take a look at the Parent Handbook.
Percussion – Front Ensemble or “Pit”
Winds – Woodwinds and Brass
Percussion – Battery or Drumline
It’s OK…you’re only spinning 56″ of brightly colored silk on a 6′ pole…NO ONE saw you drop it… 🙂
Pit Area – parents needed to help move equipment and stands on and off field
Props – parents needed to help construct, load/unload, and move props
Fans – wear blue, be loud, and let the kids know we love them!
