For band students looking on from the stadium stands, the precision, skill and discipline of the Nine-Time World Champion Cadets can be intimidating. The corps carries with it a philosophy to work hard, challenge themselves individually and perform at the highest level – every single day! 

Behind that wall of sound and the maroon machine in motion are people, individuals who were possibly, at one time, just like any band student watching in awe. Getting where they are on the field took dedication, perseverance and practice. And for some, getting that up close look at how the corps operates and rehearses inspired them to reach for the dream, and even translate those philosophies into adulthood. 

On Sunday, Aug. 8, band students and music educators in the North Jersey region will have the opportunity to work alongside the Cadets during The Cadets Experience Presented by the USSBA, a clinic that provides a chance for any band student or director to look inside, to see what the world of drum corps is like for just one day. 

The clinic will be held at Clifton Stadium in Clifton, N.J., from noon to 5 p.m. Students will receive hands-on instruction in music, marching, equipment handling and body movement from skilled instructors and technicians that actually teach the Cadets. At the end of the day, The Cadets and students will perform together for friends and family members. 

Students will also gain a glimpse into life as a Cadet, including what it’s like to tour the country for 90 days, sleep on gym floors and eat off a food truck! 

Following the clinic, students can stay on to watch the Cadets-hosted Drum Corps – An American Tradition show at Clifton Stadium featuring performances by World Class marching ensembles from around the country!
