Educational Excellence

Our instructional staff includes a carefully selected balance of music and performing arts educators with experiences from within and outside of the Madison Scouts.

Members can expect top rate instruction and a show that will be both challenging and exciting to perform. Our performers are asked to challenge themselves in all aspects of personal and ensemble performance. The Scouts team instructs, coaches and leads them through the rigorous process of creating, learning and perfecting a drum corps show.

At the end of the season, our members depart better musicians, better marchers, and better guard members…but most importantly,  as better performers. Through it all, members will have earned the opportunity to thrill audiences throughout the country.
