Bergen Mowery and Paige Lynch attended multiple leadership seminars as well as conducting classes throughout their three days at MSUPAC Drum Major Camp late June. They studied many different movements involved with conducting a marching band that they hope to put to good use this season. Paige and Bergen were also introduced to mace-work, whistle theory, and some intros to the famous MSU drum major back bending. They gained knowledge on how to better their position as co-drum majors this year as well as methods to help the band retain the most information they can out of this upcoming marching season. They are excited for the 2022-2023 marching season and can’t wait for everyone to join them on the field!
