In 2010, Founder & Director Jacob Peterson saw the need for a group of Blooming Prairie School District students to have a summer drumline program. Throughout the last few years, many schools have had to make many cuts due to state budget cuts. Unfortunately, music departments tend to be some of the first cuts in programs that are made.
The plan was to form a drumline & color guard to help try and keep music alive in students. The drumline & color guard is made exclusively of students within the Blooming Prairie School District. The main focus of the drumline is to keep students involved in the music programs within the district.
Deemed as an Educational Institute, we strive for the youth involved in the drumline & color guard to obtain self-discipline, teamwork, leadership and maintain integrity along with supporting our community values. We urge each student to achieve personal greatness while they enjoy using their unique talents and determination to increase their skills to extraordinary levels of excellence.
