Join the participatory initiative designed to get students ready for music-making activities.

Global marching music community coming together to encourage students to #BeBandReady and #KeepPlaying

#BeBandReady and #KeepPlaying campaign, presented by Ultimate Drill Book, is designed to stimulate and reawaken participation in marching music and the performing arts.

The initiative is anchored by an engaging 10-week, participatory and fun campaign designed to get students thinking about and preparing for their participation in music-making activities prior to the start of the coming summer, with the desired outcome of building momentum prior to the traditional marching band season this summer and fall.
