Whether we have 50 participants or 500, our approach to instruction is the same: recurring, recorded individual evaluation.
Improvement of individual teaching skills is enhanced through the development of every students’ observation skills.
Leadership & Communication
The single most important quality a great Drum Major must have is strong leadership. And so much of that depends on communication.
Setting the standard
DMA has been setting the standard in Drum Major education for more than 40 years.
Our founder, clinicians, and professional staff members make all the difference. Here’s why.
Our graduates have become drum majors at top bands and drum corps. And wait until you see what our past students say about us.
There are many training camps throughout the country, but there is only one Drum Major Academy. Take advantage of a once in a lifetime opportunity to realize what a great impact you can have on your band and its members.Dr. Tim LautzenheiserAttitude Concepts for Today, Inc.
The skills our students garner, along with the positive teaching methods they learn continue to inspire them to reach higher, give more and make a positive impact on our band. These are skills that last a lifetime. Drum Major Academy has my highest endorsement!Dr. Buddy Clements, Director of Bands and OrchestraWalnut High School, CA
The GNP DMA played a huge role in the success of our band program. The knowledge and skills gained are second to none. I recommend it to ALL current and future band leaders.Tim Fioravantii, Director of BandsWaterford High School, CT
When our drum majors return from the Academy each year, they are more focused, organized, and prepared. They motivate the entire leadership and seem ready to run Band Camp all by themselves!Scott Slutter, Director of BandsCouncil Rock High School North, PA
