In Episode 6 of the Drumline Instructor Podcast I'm joined with Tyler Sammons.

Tyler Sammons is the percussion director at Marian Catholic High School in Chicago, Illinois as well as the front ensemble tech for the Santa Clara Vanguard Drum and Bugle Corps.  Tyler attended the University of North Texas for his undergraduate degree and marched the Crossmen Drum and Bugle Corps as well as the Phantom Regiment.  

In this interview, Tyler and I talk about:
  1. How to start new players with no prior experience coming into your program
  2. How to develop strong student leadership within your program
  3. Tyler's list of priorities for rehearsals
  4. What things are like behind the scenes at a major BOA program
  5. Much, much more
