Being part of a marching band is a unique experience on its own. It’s not just about the music but also the movement. As you practicing your coordinated steps, you have to have an instrument that easily moves with you. With a few slight modifications, tubas, French horns and mellophones are all easily played as you march in time with your bandmates. Marching bands have been around for centuries and the tradition is still pretty popular today. If you’ve ever spent a Friday night’s at a football game in your town or witnessed a parade, you’d notice the tradition is still alive and thriving. The collection of instruments from woodwinds to brass winds emits a booming sound that goes hand in handwith celebration. The introduction of brass instruments in the mid 1800s began a trend that changed the signature marching band sound forever. Mastering a brass instrument in a band is a great way to learn musical theory and proper timing. If your horn sounds off, the entire band does, so having a team relying on you ensures your practice is perfect. Compromising with a traditional brass instrument will eventually become tiresome to hold and won’t give you the power and projection you need to blend with the rest of your counterparts. If you decide to share your skills with a marching band, it’s likely you will see your ability improve. However, you are going to need an instrument that allows you to keep up and play along. Depending on your background there is a marching brass instrument for you. If you are a tuba enthusiast, the Kanstul 202 Series 3-Valve Tuba has superior projection and easy access to your valves so you can play and march with little effort. French horn players might try the Dynasty M546 Series Marching Horn for its single point positioning and heavy gauge. This allows you to properly hold your horn with ease while still projecting as loud as possible. When you’re playing to a stadium or a cheering crowd, projection is a crucial consideration so dedicated marching brass is the only way to go. This unique group of instruments is iconic in one of the most traditional and widely used band groups. Communities come together to hear bands like this all the time, so ensuring everyone can hear a celebratory blast of a horn or mellophone is why marching brass is the perfect option for band members.
