SCV 2012 - Drum Solo Dissection

Drum Corps International (DCI) is a powerful, nonprofit, global youth activity with far-reaching artistic, educational and organizational influence. Through the annual summer DCI Tour and more than 35 World Championships in 17 North American cities, Drum Corps International provides entertainment to millions through live performances and nationally-televised events. Drum Corps International is Marching Music’s Major League™. 

The Santa Clara Vanguard (SCV) Drum and Bugle Corps consistently ranks near the top of all DCI corps. In this video, I break down the SCV snare feature measure-by-measure. The feature has a nice balance of many different rudiments and a quick tempo that should challenge even the most seasoned rudimentalists.
