Introducing Mad Skills Marching Arts Clinics

Chris K. Alumni, Events, Madison, News, Tour

Forward Performing Arts and the Madison Scouts are pleased to announce Mad Skills, a marching arts clinic for band students of all skill levels. Attendees get to learn from some of the top instructors in the marching activity, play side-by-side with the Madison Scouts, and learn important skills that you can take back to your band program. Combined with attending a Drum Corps International tour event, this is an excellent opportunity to learn from some of the best clinicians and then see some of the best drum corps perform live.

The Mad Skills clinic will provide you opportunities to improve your skills in:

Instrumental Ensemble – Brass & Woodwinds

Percussion – Snare, Tenors, Bass, Cymbals, & Mallets

Color Guard – Rifle & Flag

Conducting – Leadership – Visual Movement


This summer the Mad Skills clinics will be coming to three Wisconsin locations, including:

Whitewater – Saturday, June 24th at 4 p.m. – The Whitewater Classic at 7 p.m.

Wausau – Thursday, July 6th at 4 p.m. – The Northwoods Encore at 7 p.m.

Madison – Sunday, July 9th at 4 p.m. – Drums on Parade at 6 p.m.

Clinic admission is free with a ticket to the show. Discounted GROUP show tickets are available for your band. Attendees are asked to bring an instrument (not required), wear comfortable clothing and athletic shoes, and bring a water bottle.
