Since the late 1970s, corps-style marching has replaced so-called "Big Ten-style" marching as the dominant technique classification among competitive high school marching bands. Its rise to pre-eminence among high schools, along with modern drum & bugle corps where it has always been dominant and a small but growing number of college bands, has raised the demand for instructors well-versed in all facets of technique, and familiar with all the variants of the general style. This book is geared towards:

  • The instructor who wishes to gain a greater understanding of the stylistic and physiological concepts behind corps-style marching, and to understand the variants which he may be asked to teach but was never exposed to in his own performing career
  • The performer who wishes to pursue an understanding of what he is doing beyond the instruction provided to him by his visual caption staff.
