Purdue Drumline Music
Here, you can find all of the music that is played by the Purdue Drumline. While Purdue University does not have a School of Music, the Purdue Drumline, along with all facets of Purdue Bands & Orchestra, consists of some of the best musicians in the nation. We pride ourselves in not only being excellent drummers and marchers, but also the best percussionists and musicians we can be.
There's a reason the "All-American" Marching Band has been invited to perform on numerous world stages. From leading the 2010 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade to the St. Patrick's Day parade in Dublin, Ireland, this drumline has performed in front of millions of people. This level of musicianship does not come easily, and these opportunities do not present themselves to everyone.
The music you will find here reflects the high level of musicianship required to be a part of this drumline. Everything here, from warmups to cadences, requires talent and work to be able to play. If you want to be a part of this drumline, or any musical program here at Purdue, you must work hard. To the right, you will find a basic introduction to practicing and performing, along with standard rudiments, drum cheers, and sheet music corresponding to each instrument.
There's a lot of music on this site. We understand. Work hard, and you'll be fine!
