I'm an 8th grader that knows almost nothing about drum majors, besides them being the leaders, and twirling batons, and beating time. So is there anything I should know about being a DM, penalties? or tips? Should I start practicing with gloves so I get used to them? I'm doing DM L patterns this year as I want to try out being a Senior DM for DBHS. I currently attend AIS, so any tips for me? Any help is appreciated.

1. It's "spinning" batons, not twirling

2. I thought AIS feeds into Rowland, not Diamond Bar. Unless, you live close enough to their district

3. Didn't you take notes during the DM class you attended today? :shock: Oh wait, you were to busy interrupting and making smart remarks :lshic:

Here's your tips... P & C, bring gloves if you'd like you use them, explanation for penalties will be discussed in the next few lessons, and please copy the notes from one of the other DM's.

We'll have a little chat at our next meeting on Monday :shades:

Haha, Bryan...main reason why I'm doing this is because I want to be the DM for DBHS..I always wanted to be a leader...and yes, I'll take notes, and try not to make such remarks

Here's a great tip, Kiddo; listen to dmcoach! If he gives me a suggestion or offers advice, I'll hang on his every word and I was doing this before he was born.
