Snare Drums For Drumline

My students need marching snare drums with harnesses to be able to perform with the rest of their classmates.

My Students

My drumline students are energetic, hardworking and highly motivated students who are in need of marching snare drums. We were able to receive three marching base drums and a marching tenor.

Currently our snares are working on practice pads and two concert snares we already have.

In our drumline we have four bass drums, eight snares, one tenor and four cymbal players. The purpose of marching snares are to facilitate a drum for each student and harnesses to carry the drums while they march.

My Project

These marching snare drums will provide our Drumline class with the ability to have a complete drumline with marching bass, tenor and snare drums. Having drums with harnesses will allow students to march around and create formations that are appealing to audience members.

Having a real drum to play makes a difference in performance and improving student's skills.

Using a practice pad is great for learning but having the drum allows the entire class to hear each individual drum part and create a cohesive sound. The rebound from a snare head allows students to perform accurately and match other students playing the same part.
