The North Texas Drumline Clinic and Contest provides a unique opportunity for high school drumlines in the North Texas region to not only compete against other highly skilled drumlines, but also to present their show in a clinic setting and receive feedback on their performance. The contest portion of the day will be judged by three of the state’s top professionals in the field of percussion: Dr. Brian West of Texas Christian University, Mr. Jim Yakas of the University of Texas at Arlington, and Ben Maughmer of LD Bell High School. But what makes this contest really unique is the half-hour clinic that each drumline will receive before they perform in the contest. This clinic will take place with one of our three highly-esteemed judges, and will allow the drumline to receive one-on-one feedback and constructive criticism on their show. This will give the students an opportunity to improve upon their musical skills and abilities before they even perform in the contest, providing a higher level of both competition and experience.

The North Texas Drumline Clinic and Contest will be hosted by the McKinney North High School Band and will take place on September 21, 2013 at Ron Poe Stadium in McKinney, TX. For a map, click here.

The first half of the day will be devoted to clinics for each drumline and the contest portion will begin after a break for lunch. Each drumline is allotted 90 minutes to warm up for each performance (clinic and contest). Outstanding awards will be presented to 1st, 2nd and 3rd places, as well as Best Snare Section, Best Bass Section, Best Tenor Section, Best Cymbal Section and Best Front Ensemble.
