In late Summer 2010, a group of friends found themselves grousing about the state of the Marching Arts.  We were frustrated about seemingly bad decisions that designers and directors were making about shows, and about the direction of our activity.  Ultimately, we decided that instead of just complaining, we should DO something!  The Marching Roundtable podcasts and resources were born!  Information is now freely available to ALL to help and inspire directors, designers, instructors, judges, parents, and fans.

We’ve had the great honor to talk with many of the top experts in our activity, and we’ve shared their advice and secrets on our podcasts.  Our goal is to help everyone achieve greater excellence and to have a more meaningful experience in their marching musical endeavors.  We talk about everything in the world of marching band, drum corps, winter guard, or indoor percussion.  Find our Podcast Archives HERE.

This site also features RESOURCES to help the band director, staff member, creative designer, band parent, support staff, or member of any organization. Please share FEEDBACK on anything you hear or see, as we welcome any ideas or suggestions for topics of discussion or for further exploration.
