Afterward he spent four years as a member of the Concord Blue Devils, culminating with two years as center snare/section leader, a DCI championship title, and a high percussion award. He then spent six years as a staff member with the Blue Devils, winning three DCI titles and two high percussion awards. Roger continued his drum corps teaching experience with the Crossmen and later the Madison Scouts.

The Interactive Clinic is a “Non-Competitive Format” where two accomplished and experience clinicians will evaluate your group’s performance, and work with your students for up to 30 minutes. Unlike most events, you do not have to bring your full ensemble. You can bring any combination of performers from your marching percussion section.


All ensemble members must be current members of the Percussive Arts Society at the VIP or All Access individual level, or part of an active Group Membership, through November 30, 2019. It is the Director’s responsibility to verify all ensemble participants are active PAS Members prior to submitting the roster. Participating students can join PAS, or renew their membership here.


The $100 registration fee must accompany each ensemble entry. This fee guarantees your participation in the clinic.
