Default Re: Learning to march

I decided Id rather focus on the music. Mark time rotating at whatever pace comes natural, otherwise its one more thing to think about.
I agree, everything should feel natural and flow well. Not labored and stuttered and out of breath and janky.

Take off your left shoe while practicing
Sing the tune while marching
Also very good advice!

Maybe try marching in a long wide circle to just get used to marching to the tune before even worrying about turning..? If you aren't confident with the tune, thinking about turning can throw you off..

I'm starting to think that '7 years of learning' thing has merit- you just get more comfortable and confident the more you do it
