I am a Freshman in college (music major) my junior summer in high school I earned a lead spot with the Blue Knights Drum and Bugle Corps... A day before tour started I decided to leave the Corps because my chops were taking a turn for the worse, my embouchure was changing and my fundamentals/tone was changing as well. (in a bad way) Now that I am in college, I have continued to dream of one day doing Drum Corps, but I don't / shouldn't have to sacrifice myself as a player to do so... I plan on auditioning for Phantom Regiment this fall, a brass staff member whom helps out with Phantom Regiment is Michael Martin whom has recently earned a spot with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and also used to march with Phantom Regiment. Does anyone think that this is a good choice to follow through with? my college professor told me that if theres a Drum corps that knows how to take care of its players, it would be Phantom Regiment.
