Many percussionists at the MMS and MHS take private lessons to further their percussion skills and work toward playing in drumlines including the Legacy Regiment Drumline based in Mattoon, Colleges such as EIU, ISU, U of I, SIUC, MSU, Indiana State, Notre Dame etc, Drumcorps and more. At the MMS and MHS levels we stress technique, sound control, hard work and music reading to achieve a high level of excellence that the drumlines are known for.
