The Northwood High School Drumline aims to unite all students, regardless of prior musical background, into a hardworking community of musicians who represent the school at several major events throughout the school year both on- and off-campus. The drumline performs at all home football games (weather permitting) as well as major school functions as determined by the director and the school administration (e.g. Orientation, Pep Rallies, DCC Open House, etc.). The drumline will occasionally travel to other sites in the county in order to perform for a wider audience and compete with other local drumlines.


Drumline season begins in the summer prior to the start of each school year. Summer rehearsals will be announced to all returning drumline members at the conclusion of the previous school year. Students interested in drumline are encouraged to attend as many summer rehearsals as possible. During the school year, drumline will meet after school in room G118 from 3:00-5:00 p.m. during fall drumline season. Additional practices and meetings will be determined by the director and the drumline student captain.
