As most of you now know, myself and FS Woodfinden will be stepping down as ICs in the autumn, so we’re looking for applications for two different roles: BAND IC and DRUM MAJOR.
Points to note: You can apply for both! IC DOES NOT NECESSARILY NEED TO BE A DRUM MAJOR AND VICE VERSA.
We’d like to have applications for each emailed to myself, FS Woodfinden or Fg Off Ross by the 4th of August.
IC will be expected to head up teaching programmes, look at new songs to implement, and confer with the senior drum major to write the drill sequence.
Drum majors will be used on parades, with the senior doing the competition planning as above.
Requirements are as follows –
For BAND IC:
– Min. 2 years with the band – Cpl or above for 3 months or more – Have a least one year left active on sqn
Please complete the attached form – writing a short statement on what you think you can bring to the band as IC, and some ideas you’d potentially like to look at implementing.
For DRUM MAJOR:
– Min. 6 months with the band – High standard of drill and deportment – Marched in several parades as a member of the band – Have at least one year left active on the sqn
For you guys, we’re gonna run some training for you all, and select one senior and three junior drum majors from that. In your application, you should include any relevant drill experience (JNCO, drill team, National Band) and why you think we should choose you!
These are both great opportunities for those of you who feel like you’ve “done it all”, or anyone who wants to get more involved!
Good luck all!
