Mad Skills Clinics


Forward Performing Arts and the Madison Scouts are excited to offer Mad Skills, a marching arts clinic for band students of all skill levels as well as their directors. 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
Director’s Track – Show Design & Technique
