The SC Drum Line is made up of marching battery instruments and non-marching front ensemble instruments. Members who wish to march perform on instruments such as bass, snare, and tenor drums.
During the first semester the drum line is a part of the Triton Marching Alliance which competes in the California State Band Championships circuit. During 2nd semester the drum line breaks off to compete in the Southern California Percussion Alliance.
Here is the full video of the 2022 Winter Drum Line show entitled Hypnitic. The group is under the direction of percussion instructor and music arranger, Jeff Ramos and front ensemble coach, Julian Chavez.

Workshops and placements are designed to not only give students the opportunity to try new instruments but they are set up to place students in the best position to make the group as a whole competitive. During workshops students are asked to perform on a wide variety of excersices and to try out different instruments. Our percussion instructors will give one on one guidance during this time. Students are asked to have an open mind during the process.
Workshops/placements for the 1st semester Marching Band portion typically take place in May. Please keep on eye out for announcements either at the High School level or at the Middle School level from your music teacher.
