Music Is Cool

Marching band and color guard students of all ages and skill levels are encouraged to join USBands and The Cadets for an exciting, full-day clinic experience in five great locations. See what it feels like to be a Cadet for the day! The Cadets Staff including Brass Caption Supervisor Dr. Drew Shanefield, Percussion Caption Supervisor Tom Aungst, Color Guard Caption Supervisor Kristy Templin, Marching Caption Supervisor Craig Sellers and others will guide students through a curriculum of musical and visual performance techniques as well as leadership skills. Then, students will get to show off what they've learned alongside the members of The 2018 Cadets in their section! This is guaranteed to be one of the best days of your summer! And there's more. Each clinic day will culminate with attendance at an unforgettable DCI show that evening, included in the cost of registration!


Bring a group of 10 or more students from the same school and the price drops to $39 for member schools and $55 for non-members!

  • Instruction from some of the top educators and designers in the marching arts
  • Lunch with The Cadets served from the food truck
