WSU Drumline Audition Information

The audition process for the fall drumline typically begins on Friday, two days before CMB camp – CMB band camp begins annually on Sunday, eight days prior to the first day of classes.

2021-2022 camp packets are HERE! Due to the late change in drumline instruction, materials for camp are THE SAME as 2020.
More info to come for those that have registered.


There is currently no individual audition. Auditions consist of members playing their instrument of choice during an ensemble rehearsal (or sectionals) while the instructor moves members around – between sections and within sections – to provide the best sound for the line and the best fit for the player.

Things to know before you get to auditions:
– A GREAT attitude
– All 40 of the PAS Rudiments
– Knowledge of the “21st Century Hybrid Rudiments” is highly desirable
– Audition packet, posted here prior to camp.
– A GREAT attitude
– Memorization skills – each show must be memorized
– A GREAT attitude
– Must be a team player
– All members must be enrolled in MUS444.2 (section TWO!) Contact Dr. Bennefield if you have a class conflict
– It would be smart to learn the snare parts AS WELL AS the desired part

(i.e. learn Cymbals and Snare parts, learn Bass and Snare, or Tenor and Snare.)
