The YSU Marching Pride Drumline performs at home football games, select away games, YSU High School Invitational Band Night, community events, and regional band events. Recent performances include Ohio State University, the University of Pittsburgh, Michigan State University, and Bands of America Regional Championships.
Drumline membership is open to any YSU student via auditions at the beginning of the Drumline Camp. For camp dates and further information please visit www.ysubands.org
During the Drumline Camp, members learn a unified approach to technique and sound production that is utilized throughout the season and may be adapted to other musical contexts. Throughout the season the members learn various exercises, music, and pedagogical approaches to rehearsing ensembles and building successful percussion pedagogy programs.
Thanks to Dynasty USA for the drumline instruments and to ProMark Inc. and Remo Inc. for providing sticks, mallets, and drumheads.
