Stay tuned for exciting System Blue Education experiences coming over the next few months…


Our education programs provide opportunities for students, educators, and fans alike to hone their performance, leadership, and teaching skills under the instruction of the finest educators in the marching arts. From intense multi-day skills events to instrument-specific clinics and master classes, participants are able to study in a focused and enriching environment that includes performing alongside the members of today’s top drum corps.


System Blue now offers professional development workshops on fundamental instrumental pedagogy; rehearsal techniques; establishing a private lesson program; recruitment and retention; as well as student leadership mentorship. The workshops detail assessment and ensemble technique, as well as a comprehensive presentation on developing intonation awareness in young musicians.

Contact Frank Troyka, System Blue Director of Education, for more information about scheduling a concert band workshop.
