for me and my line, we kind of have to. to be successful, you must first off be comfortable w/ the people you work with. but when you're close enough to consider them family, you have a relationship on and off the field(or parade route)that no one else can get through. it makes everything fun and easier when you are with your "brothers" or "sisters"

Sort of but not really. I think that the people in my drumline are cool and fun to be with and everything but I'm not close enough to them to call them my family. Actually we call our PIT instructor PIT mama because we're all her kids.

Of course we do because it would seem wierd to drum with an ex. So we just leave us as a family and help each other in need of help.

I consider my drumline to be some of my best friends, but not exactly family. We've really bonded, and we play better because of it, but I just don't think we're THAT close to be "family". I mean, that's pretty deep. But it's awesome that some of you guys close enough to call them your family.

Well to the qustion that was asked....Ya my PERCUSSION section are my family. Ya some of them we hate and other we love...(o do we love them) we also date out of my section.Pit with Battery. We bond through out the year so its coo. During second semester we even know what car there parents drive so when there mom comes we can yell...Hey Thomas your mom is here its fun. We all are really close we call our main instructor Uncle Jason (first name is Jason) and we call our drum Tech. Dub (Dave). Its a lot of fun. IN our band we are the closes sectoin due to the fact that everyother section hates each other (that is a whole differnt story trust me). The band and Gaurd are kind of jellous to the fact that we see each other for about 4 hours a day and we still are best of friends. And that is just on the field or at school. Out of school and after pracitec we are even closer, we go to movies and we date each other (in a good way). We are really close and I love them...ALL of them. Its a really tuchy subject since they are all my bros. and sis's. I love them......

Totally. If anything, I'm probably more comftorable with the drumline than I am with my own family. Like in my family though, I get along sometimes and sometimes we fight, but they're all really great people.

at our school, all of percussion is just one big family. its great. its just like the biggest support group, in most of our lives at least lol you know everyone else and its really important in being a good percussion as a unit because in shows you have to trust each other or else stuff falls apart. as a pit member, if you dont trust the ppl in drumline to keep tempo, you end up going off on your own tempo thinking they're wrong and things rip, and visa versa. if you trust everyone else in the group, its easier to trust that they will keep tempo, play stuff correctly and clean, and that everything will run smoothly. and trusting each other is extremely important if something does tear in the show because you have to be able to trust your captains to pull it back together. i dunno what id do without our drumline captain/head captain. hes amazing. every rip, every tear in drumline, hes pulled it back together. and you have to have that family-like trust or else things just rip here and there and then you get all pissed off at everyone else for messing up. not good. the worst is when everyone is included in the family except for like one person who just acts up. that sucks cuz it ends up throwing things off.

The people in drumline have become a dysfunctional family that I'm a member off. I spend more time with drumline people then with my own family (unless you count sleeping...) and the few people I consider good friends are in there. Sure sometimes you're pissed off at each other but you know they've got your back....basically what I'm saying is that if the criteria for being a family is that you can talk to them about anything, trust them, be able to fight but still be ok at the end, and know each other (as in inside jokes, dislikes/likes, etc.) then yes, drumline is family.

I'm an instructor, and cause I work closely to these kids, they are in a sense like family to me... we joke, we laugh, we cry... and most important we drum...!
