View Full Version : Women as DRUM Majors

12-11-2004, 11:22 PM
Ok, a new topic:
I am the Drum Corporal in my band, and am basically the one the PM and DM look to to keep the drum line in line (the Drum Sgt being 8- he's been in the band longer, thus the higher rank than I), so I guess I would be a back up DM if it came down to it... that being said...
What is everyone's take on female Drum Majors? Are there any out there who have some words of wisdom for aspiring female DM's?

Your gender shouldn't matter. It's how well can you do the job. I've seen men as drum majors who have no idea what in the world they're doing; those are the ones who (quoting Neil Conway)"joined pipe bands after their wives told them to join weight watchers or get a hobby" and decided they no longer wanted to carry the bass drum. :wow:
