Penn State Drum Major - Introduction

The position of Drum Major of the Penn State University Marching Blue Band is one of great tradition, honor, pride, prestige, and responsibility. Since 1899, there have been 54 Drum Majors at Penn State (as of 2013). The position is perhaps most recognized for the superstition-ridden front flip performed over the 50 yard line during the Blue Band's pregame performance for fans occupying the 107,232 seats inside Beaver Stadium.


I am proud to have had the tremendous honor of representing this organization during the 2010, 2011, and 2012 seasons as the 53rd Drum Major of the Penn State Blue Band. Browse the other tabs to explore the many facets of this position and examples of my personal experiences.
